Publisher's Description

In-Stock copies of In my mind there is never silence have slight top-right corner bumps. 

This series integrates the ancestral imaginary of 'the Mercedarian panzudo' figures that represent the sins in a Catholic tradition t in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, the hometown of the author.

For over 500 years, every September 24th, the day of Our Lady of La Merced, each family builds their own 'Panzudo' and take part in this amazing event.

The Panzudos represent the sins: the more sins a person has to expiate, the bigger and uglier his attire will be, the better to cure his sins. These figures accompany Our Lady of La Merced, purifying themselves in the process. The announcement is made as the figure of the Virgin Mary passes by, carried on the shoulders of her bearers, with a retinue of Aztecs, Catholics, and Moors mounted on horseback, dressed as Arabs and with their faces painted, representing the Muslims who invaded and occupied Spain between 702 and 1492.

Fusing it with pre-Hispanic traditions and the apocalyptic visions of the Catholic religión, Diego Moreno takes us through the tunnels of the representation of the domestic space to explore its psychological density and the complexity of childhood, fusing it with pre-Hispanic traditions and apocalyptic visions of the Catholic religion.
