The Sun on My Nape

The Sun on My Nape

“The sun on my nape” is a poetic way of building paths, observing powers, searching, feeling and reflecting through the dances of mother and daughter in social isolation and the encounter with their stories. “The sun on my nape” arises from the idea of being accompanied by them – the women of the family – like a sun that warms the back of our neck as we go on. Always with that heat that protects, remembers and burns during the walk and that reveals movements of construction and reconstruction, of putting oneself in a situation, not recognizing its origins, approaching until it fogged, moving away to see, not understand, listen, shuffle, cut and assemble a tangle of landscapes that may be mine or not.
