On the 27th and 28th of January, Teresa Borasino andĀ  Framer Framed present Ausangate: a gaseous cosmology, a performance, a ceremony, a conversation with an earth-being, an ofrenda.
Ausangate, the earth-being that is also a mountain, occupies a prominent role in the Andean cosmovision, as the source of all life, of prosperity or misfortune, of health or disease.

About the event

In a conversation with Ausangate, Teresa Borasino attempts to remember those who faded into oblivion due to colonisation. The forgotten and historically oppressed communities of the Andes still carry their ancestral cosmovisionā€™s wisdom, despite being obliged into a forced distinction between humanity and nature imposed by the dominant colonialist system.

In the Andes, the ecological and relational cosmovision is put into practice through samay – a Quechua term referring to the sophisticated art of breathing, blowing, wheezing, smoking, gasping, and infusing life-essence into the world. The performance evokes and invokes ancestral relationships between human and more-than-human bodies and invites the audience to pay attention to and breathe into a gaseous cosmology.
