Baby Vulture

Baby Vulture’s installation and performance for Aki Aora approached complex topics as an analogy of death & rebirth and the duality that occurs in people’s perceptions such as our polluted ocean.

Inspired by her research of the natural environment of Tulum and the Mayan mythological stories of two Heroic Twins: Hunahpu (Junajpu) and Xbalanque (Xb’alanke) with their self-sacrifice in the underworld. The artist created a large scale ‘Nicho’ and moved her atelier inside this transparent souvenir box, where she performed on the last day of the exhibition, transforming found plastic objects from Tulum’s beach into souvenirs visitors were welcomed to take with them.
