Vientre (2013-2018) explores the links and contrasts between beauty and cruelty, between desire and the many facets of appetite in the context of our relationships with animals, with our families, with the earth and with memory. La Mixteca, Mexico, is the site of this journey deep into the den that is the womb, the first refuge in which everything comes undone, the place to which we return, that humid home of instincts, emotions and roots. Modernity and tradition collide in the middle of this field that will soon be lost, and while the desert advances and the bodies dry in the sun, I submerge and store within me the cries, the movement and the stillness under the wide open sky, under tile or cane roofs, so close to the limits of being, to the raw extremes.
