“Romper en / el silencio” is a piece that works in two dimensions, the first developed at the community of Santa Inés Ahuatempan, in Puebla’s  Mixteca. In this community, the artist builds a community space called “CHASEN THAJNI: THE HOUSE OF ALL” with the help of several members of his ethnic group Ngiba.

 

 

 

CHASEN THAJNI: THE CASA DE TODOS is made of materials and techniques endemic to traditional Ngibas constructions, and works as a mobile architecture; temporarily installed at the local downtown, This construction takes time and public space to offer various activities/activations around the Ngiba language and tradition. These activities are primarily community-led and managed, but are open to the general public. Thus, Chasen Thajni becomes a space to summon and gather a maternal voice, but also to shelter and protect it: it affirms the need to listen and reassures the presence of the Ngiba voice.

 

 

 

The second part of this piece works as an intervention at 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.
