Mutualism as an alternative to violence and displacement
Mutuum series, made in collaboration with the biologist Santiago Ramírez (PHD. Evolution, Harvard University) attempts to account for a social order based on collaboration and reciprocity between different species. The work shows us a non-opposing heterogeneous relationship that merges and complements itself. Using a variety of scientific objects such as pictures, data, flora’s and insects’ taxonomy, location maps as well artistic objects like porcelain pieces, paintings and embroideries, Mutuum accounts for the sophisticated relationship between the Gongora orchid and the Euglossa bee.
