Mexico has a prominent gore and violent media culture. Seeing mutilated corps ,bleeding organs and violent behavior in the news has become a normalized habit. In my opinion this normalized habit stimulates trivialization of violence in Mexico and reinforces a violent vicious cycle in the country.
This immersive experience at Ceremonia Music & Arts Festival was inspired in pre-hispanic sacrifice rituals . In this ritual space a human mannequin was lit and embalmed by the audience actors while other participants in masks handled real animal organs in their hands. This experiential performance was a personal commentary on how as a society we have gotten used to consuming violence as mere entertainment.
