INTERVENTION

Otro Cielo para Petare

Ephemeral Intervention

2013

Ephemeral installation in one of the most violent favelas of Caracas. A roof made of blue balloons builds a sky to the scale of children. This architectural surface is proposed as an event where people blow up all the balloons at once. In this place these sounds are associated with gunshots. The aim is to resignify the sound of the explosion and to replace memories and opening new memories away from violence.

Comission by José Angel Lamas Foundation. Plaza Sucre, Petare, Caracas.
