Installation consisting of white fabric, red and white ropes, lime, trunk hose and red clay.
Lime, used for the production of mortar, is a material from limestone, a sedimentary rock from which the cement base is also extracted. In Brazil it is also common to use virgin lime on tree trunks as fungicide material.
The hose stump is enveloped by a shimenawa, rope-lashing used on the trunk of sacred shrines of Shinto temples to indicate that there lives a kodama, guardian spirit of the forest. The work articulates the actions of a Western nature separated from the body, suspended or sacralized.
