5th Water Homage . Villa de Leyva, Colombia – November 14-16, 2009
Essence/Borders – International ArtExpo Collection

General Information.
Between 14 and 16 November 2009, Culturagua, will perform the V Water Homage in the Municipality of Villa de Leyva, Colombia. According to the Muisca mythology, in the Municipality of Villa de Leyva, Bachué goddess, the primordial mother and deity water, symbol of fertility and eroticism, emerged from the sacred lagoon of Iguaque with her child in arms and gave rise to humanity. Water for the cosmogony is the essential element for life, the great old one component of vital chemistry and the first creator of biodiversity. It is necessary to make a substantial change in production and consumption habits of the current civilization. “If it (the water) irrigates” with force, as the blood of the human being, there will be development and growth; but if it blurs or languishes, as with the patient lymph, will come desolation and death”. Gabriel Camargo Pérez, TOTA. The blessing of Nemqueteba, CAR, Bogotá, 1982.
Using the science and aesthetics, the V Water Homage tries to form fresh minds and spirits of the youth and the community with the aim changing their attitudes to the use and the defense of their water resources. It also aims to empower them to face with information and fortitude to all those whose mode of production and life style devastate everything that it finds in its way. For those purposes, ecologists, environmentalists’, and researchers that have analyzed the problem will therefore hold conferences.
