Chepica Bermuda | Galería ARTCO - Lima, Perú
(Photography, Video + Sound and Nature Installation)
The simultaneous image and reality of the shapes are the main supports of Chepica Bermuda, in this instance I used grass (Bermuda), as organic material on photographic platforms, video and direct contact with the space.
Chepica Bermuda, its objective is to establish a rapport between nature and today's world, trying to focus on something so simple and basic such as this vegetable commonly found and being able to appreciate it from a different standpoint, observing the vegetable versatility with all of its senses and confronting the simplicity of things. The monotony and the monochromatic shape of this element, warns us about the strength of nature, the intense scent of the earth within a given light space transports us to a special frame of mind, quiet, sensitive and makes us want to travel through memories and sensations.
This installation goes beyond the visual arts, since it can be appreciated by the blind who will be able to feel it through the sense of touch, hear the sounds through the videos and smell the fragrance of nature captured for a moment in time within a space.
I want them to feel it, because it is everywhere. This is insisting in a way of looking and feeling since nature is capable of providing full support. I am interested in making my works of art produce a sensation.
