Carmina Escobar with Wesam Nassar
La garganta de la serpiente
Performance for camera
11 minutes 22 seconds

In Carmina Escobar’s performance for video La garganta de la serpiente (The Serpent's Throat), Escobar looks to personify the goddess Cihuacóatl, often portrayed as half-woman half-snake, who symbolizes fertility and, by extension, the earth. The performed narrative plays out like a sort of creation myth that draws parallels between the body and nature.
