CARTOGRAFIAS DEL DANUBIO | CARTOGRAPHIES OF THE DANUBE
Cartographies of the Danube is a project developed during the residency period at the BridgeGuard organization in the city of Sturovo in Slovakia, the project consisted on a series of pieces with a personal interpretation of the Danube River, and its surroundings. During the residency, I had the opportunity to present a workshop for children in which we re interpret the cultural and natural vision of this territory in relation to the bridge that connects Slovakia to Hungary. The complete project consisted also in a series of drawings, portraits and maps, and the main piece, titled First Catalogue of The colors of the Danube consisted in a 99 oil-on-cardboard-pieces installation depicting the colors of the river at certain times of the day during the summer. It is an unfinished piece, cause it seeks to reflect on the everchanging status of nature, and it’s importance to the territory and the people that inhabit it. It was created along 30 days, utilizing different media to capture the colors and reflections of light and darknes on the water in many hours of the day from sunrise to sunset, to then equal the colors using oil painting techniques.
