Construir el Mar

Central University of Venezuela



Participatory performance to "Construir el mar (Build the sea)" in the University City of Caracas. Transforming the sea into a human creation is the metaphor for intensifying the modern utopia of a tropical country. This campus was an ambitious project that could build everything but still could not build a sea. This work proposes to build the Caribbean Sea as a reflection on the modern ideals of Venezuela in the 1950s, ideals that contrast with the vicissitudes of the social and political context of Caracas today.
