Acción Fértil (Fertile Action) is an extensive research-based project composed of three installations, a poem, and several ephemeral gestures. A meditation on the simultaneity of meaning and knowledge, Acción Fértil investigates the memory of landscape and the interconnections between the geological and the mythical to deconstruct ideological codes.
Concerned with a local tension regarding the memory and crises of water in La Candelaria, a small native municipality in the outskirts of Mexico City, Acción Fértil addresses a universal problem concerning the individual’s relationship to water and knowledge today.
