It is an installation made of mangrove woods, wall fragments and ropes that have been turned into debris by demolition. These elements, when suspended, recreate a levitate as if they wanted to narrate an atmosphere of detachment.

Here, we see a kind of static narration, of wanting to show what happens in an undefined state. The emergence of a premeditated fall allows witnessing a futile, random and playful event that occurs inside the building.
"Levedad" collects vernacular knowledge of construction that gradually disappears in the city of Guayaquil like others in Latin America that seek progress in concrete and metal. Addressing this liminal transition process allows us to approximate the cultural, social, economic and political phenomena of a city.
