RENÉE DE PEDRO
Melting is a practice that conceives love as a state, as a way of being, existing, and relat- ing to otherness and to others. Taking Vipassana meditation as a starting point, it seeks to reach the Bhanga-ñāṇa state: total dissolution. Appropriating the materials of El Sur, and using the archetype of The Tree of Life, two moments of the process are shown: the body being the tree and the tree being the body, with two pieces of different natures, the experi- ence of integrating the individual-plant and making the plant an individual. Am I being the tree or is the tree being me? Is the question that has guided this project.
To fade - Desvanecerse.
To melt - Derretirse/fundirse.
To fall - Caer.
To dilute - Diluirse.
To merge/to join together - Mezclarse.
