Group exhibition with works by Antonio Pichillá, Benvenuto Chavajay, Extinto x Geoide, Felipe Castelblanco, Frédéric Bron & Judith Weidmann and Mazenett Quiroga.

The group exhibition el ombligo del mundo ventures into the realm of spirituality, taking as a starting point the ancestral relationship between spiritual practices and the earth (the soil). It makes an attempt to approach the complexity of specific rituals and aspects of the cosmovision of indigenous communities in Guatemala, México and the Peruvian Amazon, while underscoring the dangers of a romanticised vision of indigenous spiritual practices, of over simplified narratives when facing non-western epistemologies. In parallel, the exhibition investigates a phenomenological approach to nature and the possible spiritual dimension of the everyday rituals that bring humans close to nature.
