LAB PROJECT:

Epifinia



In Sweden, a child experiences the death of her mother. During the time of grief, the child dreams about her mother coming back to life. In Colombia, a mother desires a change of routines. She tries to explore a way to regain her passion for living. By mutating the image of our mothers, we create a movement from death to life that presents a spiritual struggle to reclaim and ingest life to the fullest.
