Cyclic body in cyclic earth

Ruth Gonzalez


The installation is of my defragmented body, but at the same time, it is an expansion of my body, a dynamic expansion. I want to understand what is going on inside me, understand my cyclic body and how it manifests on the outside. Mapping the un-mappable. As if it was a terrestrial expedition, digging layers towards the center of the planet, that in this case is my uterus.

A cyclic body in cyclic earth. The map grows more and more, expanding to infinity, because my body as an energetic entity is infinite, sometimes more and sometimes less. I question what is our relationship to space if we read our bodies as spaces, rather than bodies in space? Let’s imagine all bodies as spaces, connected territories, superimposed one on top of each other. Dynamic maps, alive territories.
