As we resurge - from the physical confinement and mental isolation of these last two years, to take our first lungful – there is much we are bursting to tell you.
Nothing is the same,
all must be re-examined...
We need to talk about who we are now, who we have been, of where we are going. We have personal and race memories of migration to consider, to the pace of a drumbeat or a moment of stillness. We want to ask whether it is better to sit under a lunar cycle, and to question our mating rituals. We need to understand how the editing and conditioning of our experiences works, and how it is that an accident of birth has the ability to gift us with particular dreams or nightmares. It is time to reflect on chaos and complexity, play with old characters or create new hybrid forms with what we find. It is time to figure out how we change gears and move to a state of unhoplessness.
Conversations we start will take many turns. They may come in the form of mixed media with watercolour paper, experimental sound and vision, pencil drawing and embroidery. We may address you through oil paintings and site-specific text explorations, soft toys and puppets with an edge, or kinetic installations. We may choose to shout or whisper, use repetition or abstraction. Our exhalations are as diverse and personal as we are, they are the children of what we have been ruminating on gently or obsessively over these long months, of seeking new ways to explore, of what we have seen emerge in ourselves or observed from our bunkers.
We are coming together to reconnect and share, with each other and with you.

“The hidden writing on the wall”
(an honest creative intervention)
5537Fernando Holguin Cereceres
“The hidden writing on the wall” of the anonymous and revealed messages, resemblance the intrinsic need of individuals to express themselves without compromising their self, like a catholic going to a confessionary, or a urban graffiti artist expressing sentiment about his social environment, like the beginning of an online chat room with people using avatars to hide their identities, but perhaps is how some groups grow as the providers of support to those who feel something to say. Some members or individuals thinking in becoming part of an alternative self-support group may have their own answers or ideas of how to sustain the group and themselves, but perhaps that idea never manifests outside the individual.
By providing an intimate space, the visitor can be open and deliver those ideas in a playful and recreational manner, and perhaps this can help with further answers to develop the sustainability of alternative groups and its members.

“Tormenta cerebral" (“Brainstorm”)
In this joint work we highlight the way we view our society’s depictions of identity with regards of the self and how media actual truthfulness of information and the influences that create within society. which is largely driven by consumerism and materialistic views of individuality.
We hope that this piece will encourage people to question our own understanding of self identity driven by materialistic views influenced by regular and social media, but will also provide a very positive message about the self in contemporary times.
