Collective performance where a group of students from Antofagasta (Chile) descend hills with flags to be submerged in the sea. The action takes place at the epicenter of the Pacific War. It is a territory of historical geopolotical conflicts, whose borders have recently become strained by the increasing migrations from South America. This project seeks to rethink the relations between nationalism and its direct consequences on xenophobia. The work proposes to dilute these tensions and their social implications from the poetics of the gesture: keeping the flags contained in the same plane, moving in unison; faded in the sea.

 

Project developed in SACO Festival de Arte Contemporáneo 8, with the participation of students from the Complejo Educativo Juan José Latorre Benavente, comuna de Mejillones, Chile..
