The artist invited a number of Paraguayan artists to collaborate in this presentation. The intention was to collectively engage in the meaning of Lupus Viator with the outcome of a sound work. Instead of turning reality into art, art became reality.⠀

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations of an ephemeral nature and realised in situ. Later the project continued to evolve over a period of 7 years. It travelled to 7 different countries worldwide. ⠀
Taking into consideration its extensive duration, as well as its territorial movements, from country to country, Lupus Viator can be understood almost like a mythical pilgrimage, which covers the trails and places, where wolves have formerly roamed in abundance, before the species has widely become extinct.⠀

Is a collaboration, with a group of local Peruvian artists, Los Aguaitones. For this work the monumental wolf transformed into a multimedia installation, along with the presentation of the artist book Lupus Viator. The closed circuit works aim to observe the communication between all elements of the system, like the public awareness of this process.⠀

The second installation of Marcha de Elefantes took place at the Sistema Museo/ Rocca Maggiore di Perugia (Assisi, Italy). At this occasion the ephemeral painting of this monumental elephant march, was realized on a palisade, that surrounded the castle.⠀

Curator: Giulietta Speranza⠀
Performance dance: Gisella Zanmatti⠀
⠀⠀
The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀

The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances.⠀

Fuera de lugar, 2009 – Sculpture – Darya von Berner⁣

⁣Carole Pateman definition of ‘prostitution’ as an institution that involves the exchange of money for sexual services (property in the person) and, as an institution, has nothing to do with women’s desire, but has a lot to do with women’s survival – and the very large profits of those who control the global sex industry.⁣
