About This Work

_Apotropaión is part of a multidisciplinary work called “BAPTISTERIO”.

_The work plays with the notion of the architectonic space suggesting a synesthetic sensing of it. The work expands and articulates its existence manifesting itself in different forms. It is an album, a book of poetry, a series of short films, a series of live shows and a virtual installation on Internet Moon Gallery.

_It is constructed as a living body which sexually interacts with the medium as well as the characters that there reside (El Pelele and El Siluetador). A body is a place and a place is a body. The analogies are infinite.

_Then, its structure is rendered in a symbolic dimension where the level of proximity to the “object” is not as important as the way it lets itself being interpreted and represented.
