Eliseo Solís Mora (Upata, Venezuela): Transposición (Transposition)

The history of humanity in the pursuit of happiness has always consisted of the matter-soul balance, a binomial that we constantly experience in establishing feelings-values-needs as a whole. At this point I stop to reflect on my geopolitical situation and the global money situation, the various implications that ultimately converge on the supposed common welfare. Assuming a symbolization of this situation in my need as an individual, I mix the antagonistic sensations and tastes where sweet and bitter are the action-consequence that the body experiences. The camera performance consists of the interaction of the body with devalued bills out of circulation, receipts for purchases made after two years and honey.
