Shipwreck (from the series The Fish Dies By Its Mouth / El pez muere por la boca)


About the piece

A boat is shipwrecked on the high seas to observe the traffic of speedboats crossing the sea. Its shape is reminiscent of the humpback whales that visit the Pacific Sea off the coast of Bahia Solano to give birth to their calves. 2021. El pez muere por la boca reflects on the resilience of peoples in contexts of drug trafficking and fishing. The beach line connects the sea (or river) with the continent (or mainland) where amphibious communities inhabit with long traditions of music, dance, hairstyles, games and celebration. Also of agriculture, gastronomy, tourism, whale watching and nature. This peace is permeated by paramilitary presence, violence and drug trafficking. It's a participatory and intervention project in which the community is an active part in the creation of the images. The contrasts between traditions and armed pressure (paramilitary and narcos) are expressed in different actions, landscapes, bodies and objects.
