Estados Generales













Single channel projection with sound, 16mm transferred to video

On production





A journey of a seed that departs from the archives of the Botanical Garden in Madrid, and ends in an afro-peruvian village in the south coast of Peru, the place where the seed was collected in a colonial expedition around 1800. Like a flare in the dark, the seed will lighten different worlds and realities that hide in the shadows.

Ghost Seed


Two channel film installation, 16mm with sound

On production



In one of the deposits of the Botanical Garden of Madrid are kept samples of plant species that have not been studied or classified, forming a blind spot within the archive. By relating some of these plant tissues, dialogues are activated around different polymorphous power regimes that feed each other as conialism, European modernity, anthropocentrism and Western (techno)science.
