Temple for one

Site-specific intervention, 2013

 Site-specific work in La Sierra Nevada del Cocuy, Colombia. 

* * *

By the largest lagoon of the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy, a sacred mountain and landmark in Colombian territory, a temple for one person was built. Located at 4850 meters above sea level, was built using only the rocks that were at hand, the little oxygen in the lungs and the strength of the body. This vaulted menhir is capable of holding an adult person standing up. Today almost 9 years later, the small temple still stands.
