About The Artwork

Raks Sharki: Dance of fertility/creation. An allegory of the creative process, and the inner connection that we need for it. This picture is part of The “Creating Dance Underwater” Photo essay Project. "This is a project that explores the healing process of a given illness, and the path to optimal health. It shows a visual and experimental metaphor of the experience of people with a physical and/or psychological illness, or in a degenerative process. Creativity is shown as a fundamental and necessary characteristic when adapting to a new environment, or to physical and psychological characteristics different to those known previously. The process of continuous adaptation is implicit in the creative process. The acquisition of new skills is necessary, like those acquired when learning to dance underwater. This is the same process that must be undertaken to relearn lost skills when we recover from a physical or mental illness. Professional dancers will have to adapt their skills to the underwater environment to illustrate a metaphor which is experimental for themselves, and initially visual for the viewer. Dance is used as a symbol to represent the steps to take, both to start the creative process and achieve and develop our creativity and resilience. Each of the dances symbolizes an aspect of the path of introspection and transformation." This project has been widely awarded internationally and this series are part of the permanent collection of the National Museum of Photography of Colombia.
