Information

 “Romper en el silencio” is a work that works in two dimensions, the first being developed in the community of Santa Inés Ahuatempan, in the lower Mixteca of the state of Puebla. In this community, the artist builds a community space called "CHASEN THAJNI: LA CASA DE TODOS" with the help of several members of his ethnic group Ngiba.

CHASEN THAJNI: LA CASA DE TODOS is made from endemic materials and techniques typical of the traditional Ngibas "constructions", and works as a mobile architecture; temporarily installed in the community centre, appropriates time and space to offer various activities/activations around the Ngiba language and tradition. These activities are primarily directed at and managed by the community, but open to the general public. Thus, Chasen Thajni becomes a space to summon and gather the maternal voice, but also to shelter and protect it: he affirms the need for listening and the presence of the Ngiba voice.

The second part of this work works as an intervention in a specific site at the Carrillo Gil Art Museum. The artist, through environmental microphones, captures and transmits in real time the sounds that "gather" around THE HOUSE OF ALL; a simple speaker in the museum disperses the sound; speaks and silences in relation to the voice or silence of the community, but also in relation to the stability and instability of the technological and digital connectivity capacity of the Mixteca region.
