We look at the landscape and it gives us back his own look. As we look, we recover the past’s perspective: the worldviews of who once inhabited this territory.
In the landscape, we find too the sediments of time; we read the footprints of the space’s multiple transformations, a non-lineal registry of how we inhabit the territory.
Looking at the landscape we question our own look, the point of view that places humankind at the center of the history of image. Through the landscape’s perspective, we can approach the history of matter and experience that we are part of a tissue of living organisms in perpetual exchange. This way, we decentralize ourselves.
The performance Bodies in Landscapes was part of Rafael Freyre’s art exhibition The Material of Landscape.
