ANCESTRAL HEARTBEAT - Multisensory Installation at Portico Gallery

July 15-17th 2016 The Exhibition contains 4 main parts but organically evolves as the work develops new forms of expression to touch people´s hearts: The Shortfilm ANCESTRAL DANCEBEAT, SACRED MANTA with INTERACTIVE HEART INSPIRATION (see, touch and hear), BODY BALANCE with the 4 ELEMENTS (scent), and the BLOG LATIDO ANCESTRAL http://latidoancestral.blogspot.co.uk/ This exhibition is the result of 13 months of immersive work, including a 6 month art residency awarded to the artist by Mexican Government (SRE), and hosted by RAXALAJ, Centre of Mayan Art and Philosophy, Carrillo Puerto, Mexico. SACRED MANTA* (Sacred Blanket) An Interactive Textile Artwork. The ‘Sacred Manta’ contains 36 square pieces which are printed, embroidered or drawn by Mayan and Mexihca grandmothers and grandfathers. When you touch an image from the INTERACTIVE HEART INSPIRATION (extract from the ‘SACRED MANTA’ with 20 powerful images which transmit messages of wisdom), the ‘Rebozo’(shawl), it activates the voice of the elder who made it. A unique ‘grain of wisdom’ they want to share with us, to inspire, to heal and to reactivate our hearts and minds. A book was produced trasnlated into English which become ANCESTRAL HEARTBEAT ORACLE. *Meaning of the ‘Manta’: A natural fabric made of cotton, which is sacred and significant in the life of Mexican culture. In Mexico when you are born or when you die you are wrapped in a ‘manta’. Shortfilm - ANCESTRAL DANCEBEAT An engaging sensory body experience where the heart beats at the rhythm of the drum (Huehuetl) and with the sound of the rattles (Ayacastli) made by every movement of the dancers. Connect with ‘The Signature’, which precedes every dance, a form of asking permission to the essences of the place, and the movements represent Fire, Air, Water and Earth. ANCESTRAL DANCEBEAT connects us with life and its cycles and the power of the Universe through Mexihca Dance. A Pre-Hispanic dance which expresses the wisdom of the elders, and their oral tradition, body and movement, heart and mind, in harmony with MOTHER EARTH, the four directions and the four elements”.
