From the June 1 – June 4, the artist performed the action/interventionLa Virgen de Guadalupe no viene a verme(The Virgin of Guadalupe does not come to see me) at the Plaza Mayor, through which, with public participation, electrical impulses were generated from organic and inorganic materials from the Extremaduran production sectors connected to each other, to fuel the creation of a ceramic map of Extremadura using a 3D printer. The agri-food harvest is depicted here as the identity of Extremadura which can, by unifying its powers, turn stone into gold like an alchemist, while revolutionising its productive processes and bringing about a change in the mentality. The art piece was then exhibited at the El Brocense Art Gallery until June 25, 2017.
