POIEIN ('to do'), a word from which is derived from the term 'poetry', as the poets were once considered between the various types of artisans.
A series of live performances in the gallery or museum seek to build a time-changing relationship between musical instruments and human ability to produce sounds. The artist follows a long researching process of finding artisans who live in villages or small towns and who have inherited the ability to build ancient musical instruments of clay (unbaked clay as the ancient trace of the objectification musical instruments) and faced them with an institutional context of the various big capitals of the world. Musical instruments have undergone a dynamic metamorphosis and the performance POIEIN, seeks to create a difficult and lost dialogue in time and space.
The first implementation of this performance unites in dialog Pipo Moresca, an artisan from Puglia who
produce whistles in earthenware and the band of “L’Orchestre de la Grande Republicaine” Paris.
The second implementation unites in dialog Agustín García Reyes, an artisan from Metepec - State of Mexico and the musicians of Conservatorio Nacional de Musica, Mexico City.
