Portable River

Madrid-based art collective Luzinterruptus has once again taken to the streets, this time in Caracas, Venezuela, to create an installation called Portable River. Choosing water is one of their recurring themes. To achieve their urban river, they created their own flow of crystal clear water packaged in 2.000 transparent bags, inside of which, in addition to light, they included samples of the life that dwells in it. Each bag was a small, ephemeral aquarium, a container of fish and plants, which, thanks to the light acquired an unsuspected value. Now, looking at the photos of this installation and seeing the water inside the bags, as if it were sacks of money, you cannot stop thinking about how some governments traffic in this basic need of human life, offering it to the highest bidder.
