In the Anima Mundi installation, designed specifically for La Bodega, the artist is inspired by the concepts of the memory of the earth and, for this, uses recycled, painted and sewn fabrics and a series of poems that emerge from the interior of the jars, creating a playful and festive vision, and at the same time, poetic of reality.
