Sobre la herida – Proyecto Traslados

As part of the artistic residency from Proyecto Traslados, I created a series of works that addressed a personal issue I dealt with ever since my dad left home. A wound in my chest appeared and in difficult moments, it hurt and burn very much. I decided to leave my pain behind by healing it through land art interventions. I dig the dry ground with the shape of my wound in Yahuiche, Oaxaca; I drew my pain in the sand of San Agustinillo’s beach; and finally, I opened a crack in the asphalt in a street next to my dad’s house. In every location, the climate helped heal the wound, slow or fast, with rain or with salt: the pain went away. As a closure, I invited local inhabitants from Yahuiche to write and burn their soul injuries; the ashes were buried at Yahuiche’s wound. In the end, all of the wounds were healed.

Etapa Final

After several months of finishing the three phases, kids were invited to also write a letter about sad experiences and burn them in the same hole that I originally dig in San Jerónimo Yahuiche, Oaxaca.

Traslados Book

Once the project was done, I collected all the documentation I had in an artist’s book, closing the injury that motivated me to talk about my pain. The injury was healed, and a new series of “traslados” (movements, travels) began for me.
