ENSUEÑOS

ENSUEÑOS is a visual and sound installation in homage to Nature. The immersive work invites the public on a sensory and poetic journey to the heart of the voices and songs of women from the communities of los pueblos originarios in Argentina.

In dialogue with sounds and birds from different territories, from the South to the North of the Andes Cordillera, women of all generations invite us to listen to the earth and to vibrate the energies of a living cultural heritage. Their gaze, their traditions, their strength and their struggles represent a world that exists and resists. An invitation to join this path of resilience and learning.
