Tales of the Sick Cement (2023)

The history of territories is made up of two elements: the bodies that transit it and the spaces that inhabit them. This is what we observe when we delve deeper into the memory of a territory such as La Marina. In Relatos del cemento enfermo we propose a scenic investigation to delve into the past, present and future of this territory, while capturing the traces left by its social struggles and the traces of its resistance movements.

Relatos del cemento enfermo is an itinerant installation, designed as a confessional without a temple, which over the course of several days traveled through different spaces of La Marina, capturing memories and traces. An artifact that collected, from the poetic accounts of its inhabitants and the soundscapes extracted from the neighborhood's memory, the testimony of a space in constant transformation.
