The environmental, Indigenous, and ecofeminist struggles have been gaining resonance. Thanks to them, the way in which we understand ourselves as part of nature and the defense of the environment have become common concerns for more and more communities, especially after the shared experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the novel The Pearl (1947) by John Steinbeck and the relationship of muralist José Clemente Orozco to that text, this project addresses different ways in which contemporary artistic production explores these issues with some urgency, mainly in Latin American and Asian contexts. The story of a man who finds an invaluable jewel in the ocean allows us to rethink the exploitation of the environment, the displacement of communities, and the physical and symbolic violence that capitalism exercises against bodies and territories, particularly in coastal regions.
Enterrar los pies en el paisaje (To Bury Your Feet in the Landscape) is a project organized with the Museo Cabañas, in collaboration with the Baja California Sur Museum of Art, curated by Lorena Peña Brito
