"Tres vistas aéreas de los Andes y Amazonía" es una pieza trabajada a mano por los artesanos del taller de Roberto Román en el distrito de Huaycán, al este de Lima. "Three aerial views of the Andes and Amazon" was handcrafted by artisans from Roberto Román's workshop located in Huaycán district, at the east of Lima.
The stones allude directly to our nearest landscape: the mountains that border the coast of Lima. They are witness of flowing water and the passage of time. They come down from the highlands through the river creaks until they reach the sea and become sand. It is in the water where the Andes, the Amazonia and the desert converge.
We dig up land and find the imprints of every time, like rings of trees. We find a geographic and geologic space formed by overlapping layers and skins, fossils and time sediments that recreate the diverse and fragmented, past and present, solid and liquid at the same time. It is space in continuous discontinuity.
The Material of the Landscape aims to reconstruct the continuity of our time and space, reconnecting identity and body, and the relation with our inner and outer self, finding again the origins of the wild materials and their continuous transformation.
