Interactive art

CCGSM, 2017

Uturunku (jaguar) is an installation that presents itself as a ritual space, in front of a contemporary man lacking in religiosity, eager to seek spirituality as a pseudo-scientific / religious account. In the absence of a tanatic account that gives meaning to death and therefore to existence, this ritual space tries to be erected as a possible refuge from the inclemency of today, but it does not stop presenting itself as a confused sea of uprooted signs, image of our time or melancholic gesture of an ancestral past.


Uturunku is an interactive installation in which the public comes into contact with a ritual space, through interaction with their body, unfold rhythms and images that refer to the rite.
