Creative Action Fund 2020 | Kipi Recordante/Recording Kipi
Created in partnership with Raúl Ayala, Kipi Recordante/Recording Kipi is an artist book traveling across time and space with particular ritual instructions, meant to be harvested by the artists’ 8 nieces and nephews when each turns 18 years old. The book will be sowed underground, containing an array of visual and aural languages, including portraits of the artists and a record of their lived experience interwoven with interpretations of our current times.
