This intervention is part of the fourth edition of Gallery Weekend Barcelona and the parallel programme Compositions.
The shot of a small piece of land is dilated with each inhalation and goes back to normal with the exhalation. This work talks about our relationship with nature and how we approach it from the essences, through something as essential as breathing. Breathing is not only each human being’s manifestation of life; it is also a recognised way to arrive to higher states of being, to elevate oneself. It is the ability of human beings to externalise the internal world each one carries inside, with the same ease with which we breathe. Cada respiro [“Each Breath”] is about the power of imagining, the power of creating and the power of giving life.
