Habitar-Dwell

The exploration of the river limits: the inaccessibility, the inevitable temporality and the technologies that make it persist. Collective experiences based on the stay, survival and conviviality on the riverbanks. There are temporary collective spaces of research in which to create and re-memorize in an attempt to posses the uninhabitable: memory.

“Habitar” is a collection of collective actions and/or objects generated by the traces of these experiences. To live using caves as shelters, hunting with a slingshot, tree climbing, clay battles, to walk up the river… these practices are unfolded in small objects as “Documentation of 19 days living in a cave”, “Double Skin”, “The Oxygen Stones” or Hidronoma.
