August 2017: Sesión Lúcida

In honor of Robert Filliou’s ‘La Musée Légitime’ visual artist Martin La Roche Contreras curates a series of performative exhibitions inside a hat. For the edition at Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo the artist infused the interior of a Coppola hat with an essence consisting of the ground seeds of the Snuff Box Sea Bean, rectified spirit and seawater. The thick seeds are employed in various native medicinal traditions to induce vivid, lucid dreams or communication with the spirits.
