Cecilia Vicuña conducted a series of performances at the birth of the Rio Mapocho, and along the course of the river, as it crosses Santiago, ending at the River's mouth in Llolleo, Chile. Conceived as a gesture to recover the memory of the sacred Mapocho Valley, now deeply contaminated, and as call to end the privatization of water in Chile. Filmed 2016-2017. The work was exhibited at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Santiago, as part of the exhibition Movimientos de Tierra, 2017
