Gathered stories from neighbors of Mexico City mash into a mythology after colliding into a group of artists: an interactive evening of performance, comida from LA MILPA, edible amaranth sculptures, elephant parades, violins/cellos, egg hunts and disappearing language.

myth° a folklore genre that consists of sacred narratives about gods and plays a fundamental role in society. It confirms societies religious values and norms and provides a pattern of norms to be imitated. It testifies the potency of ritual and defines cult.

story is ancient method for continuation and evolution/transformation of culture.* It is a fragmented perception of a past unfolding. It provides a room that reveals the reality of fantasy and the fact of fiction, within the thread that each vision of world is an unmatched sculpture. It is where factuals lose their stature and become impossible- cease to exist. Here we create contemporary place-based mythologies to continuously break the evolution of reality into smaller and smaller fragments of the imaginative realm, actively validating social potential to invent, and emphasizing the godliness of dailynessTwisting the untouchable narrative of legendary iconic figures from traditional MYTH into the daily living peoples of corn eaters.

 

Turning over reality. On it's underbelly is the guts-the magician-the paper ghost dream.

A thread to follow, a chaos to exalt.
