The Alamar (Asea) installation shows us two sculptural forms (referring to moons or cells) suspended in the air on which a video is projected. These sculptures with spherical shapes are made of expanded polystyrene and on them you can see images of two swimmers. The first image is of a man diving into the Pacific Ocean bathing the Nicaraguan coast and the second is the artist herself floating in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the northern coast of the United States. The circumference of each sculpture measures approximately 61 cm. (24 ”) and the video loop lasts 6:30 min.

The Alamar installation that is presented in the Políglota room is an intense visual and sound experience in which the artist raises recurring problems in her works: through a post-human, sexless body that tells us about the lost paradise of nature and of identity, while it warns us of the coming of a new era in which men, instead of transforming the world, will be able to transform their own being.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate.
