COLUMBAS Messenger Pigeons (1998). An 18x18 meter drawing interrupts the Plaza Bolivar in downtown Bogota, an emblematic space of the Colombian capital caracterized by the eclectic surrounding arquitecture,(colonial, republican and neoclassical styles, among others) but where there is no trace of the precolumbian past. The lines of the drawing were accentuated by the presence of hundreds of pigeons that flocked upon grains of rice and corn untill the image of a precolumbian tunjo (belonging to the Muisca culture that inhabited this region before the arrival of the europeans) appeared and then slowly disappeared as the pigeons ate the grains. It was recorded photografically in three takes as the drawing was being disconfigured. A visual questioning about our identity, sense of belonging and temporality.
