"In order to the force of the Hanan Pacha can exist, its light must first be presented to the puma, who demands the light to begin crawling like a snake above the entire Kay Pacha to wake him up, to give him life. While the universe is born, the first internal pulsations are manifested in the Uku Pacha of each one, allowing us to be the candidates in learning to collect and sculpt that same light, to offer it next to the last beat when we will undertake the trip with the condors and return to the origin."

UKU

Uku significa "mundo interior" en español y se refiere a todo lo que está debajo de la Tierra, donde cuevas, lagos y cañones simbolizan las conexiones a este plano de existencia, que han sido esculpidos durante millones de años debido a la propia violencia de la naturaleza. Sin embargo, hay algunas puertas al mundo de Uku que han sido forzadas por los humanos en poco tiempo debido a la violencia que nos une con nuestra historia.

El territorio resuena en los humanos e influye en nuestra espiritualidad. A lo largo de nuestro camino hemos tratado de encontrar y representar lo divino a través de elementos de la naturaleza como el fuego, las montañas o los relámpagos, pretendiendo responder a grandes enigmas humanos. Actualmente estamos viviendo en un contexto en el que la naturaleza se ha transfigurado y nuestro vínculo con ella se ha modificado, donde conceptos como identidad, verdad y divinidad se han convertido en moldes frágiles. La conciencia se ha vuelto extraña, incomprensible, más compleja y más caótica.

Uku es un viaje ritual entre imágenes que emergen en forma de símbolos desde las preguntas más íntimas y que entran en un territorio transfigurado por su propia luz, inspiradas en la articulación de geografías imposibles y violencia, dejando un testimonio de la espiritualidad contemporánea.


Uku means "inner world" in English and among the Andean cosmovision it refers to everything that is under the Earth, where caves, lakes and canyons symbolize the connexions to this plane of existence, whose have been sculpted during millions of years due to nature's own violence. However, there are some doors to the world of Uku that have been forced by humans in a short time due to the violence that links us with our history.

The territory resonates in humans and influences our spirituality. Along our path we have tried to find and represent the divine through the elements of nature such as fire, mountains or lightnings, pretending to respond to the great human enigmas. We are currently living in a context in which nature has been transfigured and our link with it has been modified where concepts such as identity, truth and divinity have become fragile duplicable molds. Consciousness has become stranger, incomprehensible, more complex and more chaotic.

Uku is a ritual journey between images that emerge in form of symbols from the most intimate questions entering a transfigured territory by its own light, inspired by the articulation of impossible geographies and violence, leaving a testimony of contemporary spirituality.
