Magic is a mythology. There are different kinds of magic. Myths multiply. Sociopolitical art is everything that we do … For me, myths are the reality of cultures. As a Mystifarian, it is a mission to create new myths and update others. The only object to make is an independent country. 

This country is the Pangea Art Republic, Rio Espiritu Santo, c186 k22 e2, El Yunque Rainforest, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. It’s my performative space in a rain forest, a space that will be opening with “THE ANCHO-RITE.” Is it the result of a whole life of performing, a culmination of all the failures, my teacher? The rainforest is a great cartel for now.
