La faena #BarreTuBaldosa

The piece is a depiction of a daily scene in the shores of the bay of Santa Marta, where the fishermen pull the nets they’ve left on the sea waters close to the beach, usually at nighttime. The artists took a picture in the beach to the south of the Camellón, known as Playa Los Cocos, which was the basis for this piece. Along with the fish, though, the net always comes out of the sea with entangled pieces of trash, mostly plastic. Of note is the use of a pattern from the tiles at the Colonial guesthouse where the artists did their residency. The hashtag #BarreTuBaldosa refers to a favorite call to arms by JáfanaJafana, the cultural center that served as a local liaison for Soma and Germán. It translates “Sweep your tile” (?) a change within everybody and their immediate surroundings, looking to add and expand on the positive consequences of many individual choices. In this case, a cry to change our attitudes when we go to the beach and in general our relationship with what is considered waist.
