The closest English definition to Uku Pacha is between "world below" and "world inside." Whitin 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, these places have been sculpted during millions of years due to the violence of nature, however, there are some doors to the world of Uku Pacha that have been forced by humans in a short time due to the violence that links us with 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 currently live in a context in which nature has been transfigured and our link with it has been modified inside an intangible network where concepts such as identity, truth and divinity have become fragile duplicable molds. Consciousness has become stranger, incomprehensible, more complex and more chaotic.
Uku Pacha 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 that leaves a testimony of contemporary spirituality.
