About the Item: In the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC I learned that all indigenous peoples in Latin America, from Alaska to Patagonia, are connected through their DNA. In other words, they all either crossed through the Bering Strait or arrived in Asian vessels through the Pacific. What I want to achieve with these artworks is to showcase the link between Asia and Latin America. A particularly noteworthy country in this context is Peru, in the Andean region. There, you can observe ethnic groups and populations that surprisingly share the same skin-tones, facial features, and physical characteristics found in Tibet, near Everest, or in high-altitude regions. This demonstrates a close bond not only in terms of DNA but also in the structures we observe in humans, uniting Asia and Latin America. This work is part of a project I have been working on for several years, focusing on human bodies and DNA at a global level. I even extracted a stem cell from my own body to represent different ideas about how the difference between one human and another is reduced to just 0.1% in their DNA. In other words, we are all one and come from the same mother.
