When you feel trapped in your own skin. Our bodies embody all limitations and possibilities at once, and this is an attempt to dig deeper, to find new paths of scape into your skin, your bones, your muscles, every vein and every tissue, and in this process different landscapes appear, as a promise of liberation. Each body is a context, each body is a landscape in constant transformation. Carried out during the period of confinement in Lima Peru (2020).
