14. The Neighbors Round
Manuela Morales Delano
“The Neighbors Round” is about collective action and how organization and support in communities lead to a better understanding of one another and of our surroundings. The sculpture is reminiscent of the old anthropomorphic wooden figures (stake god) that can be found in different parts of the world and from which a human tower is created.
The work consists of an open structure made of found branches from the surrounding area, reminiscent of a human tower. Such human pyramids are also called “castellers”, a very old tradition that was first documented in 1712. The transitions between the towers consist of shoes, especially high-heeled shoes, which connect the different levels with each other. The tower is built over a wall of grass formed by the landscape.
About the artist: Manuela Libertad Morales Délano (1986, Talcahuano, Chile), visual artist, is currently doing an MA in art at the Art Institute of the FHNW in Basel, where she has lived since 2020. Her work is shaped by a documentary practice in which she explores the body in order to reflect on power relations and collective memory. In 2016 she founded the Galerie Mario Kreuzberg, a project space at Kottbusser Tor in Berlin, which focuses on experiences of displacement and narratives related to Kreuzberg as well as projects related to South America.
