ARTWorks by visual artist Laura Mema in collaboration with Neo-Shamán instructor Gabriel Bergonzi.

The site-specific instalation is located in Madrid, in the showcase of “LA CELESTINA” [Calle Huertas 21, Barrio de Las Letras, Madrid. ]

This art-works are generated from frequencies made visible on cymatics plates. The plates are exposed to frequencies generated by bee buzzing pollinations vibrations and have the purpose of becoming breathing stations, to generate ecological empathies in our physical and energetic body.

How did this come about?

Before the pandemic, Laura and Gabriel met by practicing Carlos Castaneda's Energetic Passes online. These are shamanic physical and respiratory movements to recover energy from social conditioning. It was in combination with one of these series of movements, called "Breathing the Form", that this synergy with Laura Mema's artistic process began with her research on interspecies communication. So after this, we manifesting this collaboration.  At the height of the outbreak of the "I can't breathe" movement from the Floyd case in New York and prior to the pandemic. Today, a year and a half later, we find the opportunity to manifest this collar integrating Laura's work with the instructions of magical Passes that Gabriel offers.
