“SILENT DANCE” an offering from the Andes
I walk my path through roads of stone and salt. I receive the universe manifesting itself in very simple things; sometimes in the thin air of silence or rain and sometimes in the flash of a lightning or a roar.
I take photographs and keep traveling journals everywhere I go, I write to understand what I see and what I feel. But above all I write to pray and to heal. Some words I intend to seal inside of me, others I try to remove by opening the angles of some letters to break them free. What I wish is to experience is the rawness and music of the first day of existence.
Lucio Boschi was born in 1966, in Argentina, where he lives and works.
He is the author of eight books: Señores de la Tierra (1996), Pueblos de los Andes (2000), Danza Callada (2002), Quebrada de Humahuaca (2003), Una Argentina (2005), Un Mismo Rezo (2007), Ranchos (2010), La Celebración (2016).
His work is part of private collections and art institutes across the globe, including: Buenos Aires National Fine Arts Museum; the Smithsonian Institute, the United Nations ILO; the Art Institute of Chicago; Buenos Aires Ethnographic Museum; Tilcara Anthropology Museum; Universita Di Roma; La Sapienza; U.C.L.A Anthropology Research Department; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; New Mexico State University Sociology and Anthropology Department; Andean Research Institute, University of Buenos Aires.
Lucio’s story is that of a travelling, self-taught, philosopher, registering through the lens what he sees and what the objects feels. At the age of 18 he began a journey that would take him through Latin America, living with the Inuit communities in Northern Canada, and the nomad tribes of Siberia, Mongolia and Bhutan. He spent time in India and in the Himalayas documenting the Tibetan diaspora living in exile.
Almost a decade later, in 1998, Lucio returned to his homeland and settled in the northernmost part of the country with a community of indigenous people from the Andes. For years he lived in the mountains as an ascetic renouncing all material comforts and leading a life of strict austerity and self-discipline.
Lucio worked with the United Nations and the International Labour Initiative to create the first image bank about child labour in Argentina. He presented documentaries in the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, Malba, and his book about prayers at the Aperture Foundation in New York.
