Navels of the world
[mountains, omphalos, zeros...]
2015-ongoing

The serie contributes to the research on land identity by myths and landmarks that are shared and universal across different cultures. Focusing on the idea of the starting/emerging point of a place/people, the drawings, photos and trips investigates how these symbols are the represented in the landscape.

The ongoing research features Sacred Mountain, Navels, Zeros, Omphalos (navel stones), Menhirs and other imagery that materialize the idea of this 'zero' from where we came in diverse places around the word (or in mitological and spiritual space). 


What our shared symbology can teach us about the how we human relates to the earth we all inhabit? What are our needs as beings to feel grounded in the landscape we live?
