We lived in a dystopian reality where all we wanted was to abandon ourselves, immerse ourselves in that platform that allowed us to feel pleasure again, not just a senseless life. We accessed it on our own, worked and struggled in reality to create our lives in fiction.
The opportunity was given, we left ourselves behind, and our souls expanded in pleasure. The lie had already invaded our bodies. We played in the mountains, soaked our bodies in the sea; everything was beautiful, everything shimmered before our eyes. The sunlight on my skin didn't burn me, the wind in my hair, and the stars in my gaze. Everything was perfect in our absolute lack of control, complete control of our lives. We were being deceived; we knew it from the beginning. We were abducted at the moment we felt most alive, celebrating our individual worlds and feeling the absence of the past.
The work is created from a personal study of the body and the detachment of identity during quarantine. A long period of introspection resulted in the initiation of a narrative project materialized in performance, documented in photos, videos, and plastic materials. It seeks to understand the way we are living and the future we are creating, placing the present in a dystopian reality with a utopian escape.
This work was made possible thanks to the union and coordination of the best and highest talents in the country (Colombia).
