Rímac Stones explores our hydrographic landscape and its interaction with the materiality of our territory. The water we use daily connects us with the river that brings it: the Rímac, in Quechua the talking river. Its waters come from the heights of the Andes, descend and enter our homes and bodies every day. In its descent, the water drags and sculpts the minerals from different heights of the Andes. Thanks to its waters we can inhabit the Lima desert. The Rímac river fertilizes the valleys and waters the plants that feed us. Through water we carry out the ritual of the bath every day: we wash our hair and our skin, our most sensitive organ. Water purifies our body internally and externally and cleans our spaces. The river enters our space and body every day. Rimac Stones witness the flow of water and the passage of time. A lavatory is also a river or the water that flows through it.
