Documents for an Imperfect Future


TRJ creates a progressive topology of chapters/ports constructed on the basis of:
- drawings of hydrographic tables showing the paths of navigable rivers in South America (based on photos developed by NASA).
- a virtual itinerary, cross-referenced with statements from the road diaries of Ernesto “Che” Guevara
- the status of the 'revolutionary', understood as a practice and a continuous process.
- the exhibition as public capital, cartographic progress and inclusion of new chapters/ports.
The project functions through its potential for possible route changes or drifts, which in turn imply questions about frontiers, interstitial spaces and the perception of what is public (implicating the system of art itself).

The Revolutionary Journey!
A navigated novel

Journey plan
The journey plan is based upon lines that begin in the first stretch of Bolivian territory, continually spiraling and turning 360 degrees. Each chapter is a port in the continual line of rivers running from Puerto Brais on the Beni River to the Ucayali River (Bolivia), entering the Amazon through Iquitos (Peru), flowing through Leticia (Colombia), Manaus (Brazil) and others ports, crossing the Mato Grosso (Brazil/Paraguay) until they spill out into the Tigre Delta (Argentina) and launch a new voyage.

The means of navigation can be passenger/commercial ships, barges, canoes, boats, motorboats, rafts, etc., depending on the different legs of the journey.

TRJ’s status as navigated novel brings together the project’s different layers and organizes its unity and its temporal and spatial drift. TRJ is an ongoing project and is updated as each new stage of the journey is realized, or in each public presentation, by means of a new cartography of rivers and strategies of perception.
