In the Middle of the Mictlān (2019)

in-the-middle-of-the-mictlan

In Aztec mythology, the Mictlān was the region of the underworld where most people went. The belief was that when dead warriors arrived there, they reincarnated as hummingbirds and butterflies.

In the Middle of the Mictlān has been created on the occasion of Jared Kushner being awarded the Order of the Aztec Eagle by Mexico in 2018. This award, the highest given to foreigners, is said to be awarded to individuals who have done a great service for Mexico or for humanity.

The video has been constructed using a series of close-ups of Donald Trump’s mouth, taken during his 2018 State of the Union Address.
