- Earth Exchange

‘I respect, love, work the earth, I make it the object of my work and for this reason I invent rituals that other lovers of nature and not only vegetal but also human and animal life are ready to share with me. This is why, between me and the other lovers of this same utopia, there is an exchange relationship that we call EARTH EXCHANGE. An exchange that blends soil from counties and soils without respecting limits and/or boundaries. A poetic ritual devoid of profit but rich in the positivity that art and poetry grant to those who renounce money and power.’
