volveré y seré millones, 2022

3D print, UV print on wood

150 x 120 x 50 cm


Volveré y seré millones is a project that creates a historical fiction by combining real and fictitious events around the Monument of Independence of Mexico City. The project is made up of a collection of “premonitions”: a 1948 film where the Angel of Independence falls in an earthquake; the scene of the fallen angel after the 1957 earthquake in Mexico City and a phrase uttered by Túpac Amaru II before his execution in 1781, “I will return and be millions”, which is resignified as a feminist war cry. The installation stages the fall of the Angel of Independence during the 1957 earthquake, in an attempt to use the destruction of icons like this one as an opportunity to render new reading possibilities.
