Acción fértil (Fertile Action) 2018, is a research-based project composed of site-specific installations, time-based experiments, interviews, derives, text appropriations, and ephemeral gestures. These exercises evolved into a poem titled llamado / acción fértil. Written during the process of these acts, the poem unearths different voices that reveal conceptual, social and religious tensions, which ultimately reflect the mythological memory of a microgeography: a natural pond in the Pueblo de La Candelaria of Santa Cruz in the outskirts of Mexico City.
A performative trajectory and a process of documentary poetics, the project creates a force-field, a meditation that stands somewhere in between geological and “historical” consciousness. Concerned with a local issue regarding the crises of water in La Candelaria, Acción Fértil addresses a universal problem: the individual’s relationship to water and knowledge today.
