In the beginning of my research for 'Purification' project, I was associating the process of production of art with the process of purification and production of cocaine in the slums of South America. This process requires basic materials provided by nature, some chemicals and human labor. This human labor in colonial countries is done in illegal conditions, a fact that supposes a crisis in the socio-economic context of these countries of the Southern hemisphere. This alchemy produces a precious product of great social and economical value as was the Gold during the colonial process.
