Reset (Chimeric) Video and sculptures 11 seconds and variable measurements between 30cm x 45cm Bogotá, 2019
Reset is a degree zero in which destruction evokes potential construction. It is, at the same time, a survival mechanism and the possibility that remains viable when the previous ones are exhausted. The concept of reset is as tangible in operating systems as intangible and unreal in History, since History is characterized by the interaction of time layers within one another. When reviewing the 200-year history of Colombia and finding that more than half of it involved war, I fantasize with the idea of starting over.
The management of land in Colombia has been a cross-cutting issue related to the 50-year-Armed-Conflict and the violence that has invaded the country since its foundations, which stretches from the large portions of stolen land from indigenous and peasant communities and continues with the corruption in the management of vacant lots. Nowadays Colombia is still one of the countries with the worst land distribution in Latin America and there is no certainty on who owns the land. Thus, I propose three proposals for territorial redistribution based on the random contact between mud, gravity and ground.
RESET (Chimeric) was exhibited within the framework of Future Heritage —> The New Normal Exhibition of the Habanero Institute. http://www.instituto-habanero.co/ and is now part of the digital archive of the Museum of Historical Memory of Colombia.
