Tejidos

Which is tougher, a physical or an internal wall?

TEJIDOS is created by Pared Blanca in co-production with Trama & Drama and Emprendedores Culturales. This project fosters connections between people and environment through an artistic intervention in urban green spaces, during which memories are collectively knitted in search of new horizons of coexistence. TEJIDOS links the green space that surrounds Vystaviste with different parks in Mexico City and seeks to recover these open spaces as sharing places by promoting different relationships among people, who share their memories while hand-knitting a symbolic fabric that encourages empathy as a resistance to fear and insecurity. The knitting process began in Mexico City in 2018 and continues during PQ 2019. Over 10 days a physical and symbolic journey through memory is knitted along three stages of artistic intervention: Memorias Tejidas (knitting workshops), Tejedoras de Caminos (performance) and Atlas de Memorias (audiovisual installation), during which all visitors are invited to be part of the scenographic process that involves different relationships and levels of fiction.
