INNER AWAKENING

Project INNER AWAKENING

Who rises, can contemplate the sublime majesty that rises against the smallness of him.

But before rising, it is necessary to WAKE UP…

Concept

Re hectic pace of modern cultures slows down the pulse of social life. Bose who look no longer see, or contemplate the sublime, as if it were something foreign to themselves.

Two elements that make up the culture of northern Argentina carry on a dialogue with the Arab culture in this work. «La Randa», ancient fabric that is heritage and tradition since colonial times; and «El Coyuyo», a common insect from the north of the country, characterized by the emission of sounds that vibrate in its singing.

The coyuyo lives underground, its nature is not dead, its intimate relationship with the environment causes the awakening of a life that beats encrypted. It can take up to 17 years, until it emerges from the depths of the earth to the branches of the trees to further move» from this state to the other with the appearance of its wings. Dere will be no Alight, no elevation, without first waking up, and their singing will announce the birth or farewell of a new day.

De artist’s Calamus draws a calligram where the aesthetic and symbolic aspects of this insect are condensed, the sounds of its singing, those that analogously emulate the expressions of sacred prayer, are captured there. De sound echoes of distant cultures that interact in a universal language: rumble, vibrate, and rise. If the calligram of the Coyuyo is the synthesis of the experience of elevation, the Randa is the canvas on which sounds and images are woven and intertwined, evoking the path that oral tradition found in calligraphy, so that it would be the fabric and the support to protect the sublime value of the sacred.

Sowing, nurturing, awakening, changing and being reborn, in order to finally be able to rise, is not a journey towards an ascending destiny, it is, above all, rising within oneself, to awaken a consciousness that unites us once again with that majestic that contains us forever.
