Project for the support of the Ministry of Culture of Colombia within the residence of TEOR/ética, San José, Costa Rica.

The National Theatre Costa Rica contains inside a painting that became an iconic image within the Costa Rican imaginary, a banner of national identity and an important piece in the construction of the project of state/nation in the country, the video refers to the way in which the eurocentric and exoticism look distorted the Latin American reality, dislocating how to recognize ourselves autonomously. Taking as a starting point one of the most clear errors of the painting; a man holding a bunch of bananas in the wrong way, when to do this, both body and bunch show the ravages of physical effort, the body fatigue win over the man and the gravity causes the bunch of bananas gradually destroyed.
