Ya’axché, the ceiba tree is holly for pre-Columbian and Mesoamerican cultures; in it inhabit all deities and its trunk connects the planes of the underworld and the sky with that of the terrestrial realm where we exist.
Our existence, our connection to life and nature is bond to death, to the heavens and the underworld.
This project postraits nude bodies between different ground covering plant types, making allusion to the border between life and death, the border between us and it, ‘Nature’.
This points to the interconnection of all life forms in our world and is a metaphor for the evolutionary development of the biological and spiritual consciousness.
The understanding and embrace of our origin; the recognition of decease and birth as one, shows us that death is weaving every moment and that dying is a return.
