From where do you look at the sun? is the first collective experiment of Helvetropicos, a platform created in 2022 by artists Verónica Casellas, Patricio Gil Flood and Jorge Raka with the objective of fostering the exchange between artists living in Switzerland who share a genealogy of affection with Latin America.

The exhibition is based on a simple idea: “asking each artist to close their eyes and direct their imagination towards their own west, thinking of other possible ways of knowledge, evoking without specific location”.
At first glance, it would seem that From where do you look at the sun? is an exhibition that asks that we orient ourselves. If we are to answer the question in the title, we would have to identify a center, position ourselves,and from there, look at the sun. We would have to know where we stand, and which direction we are facing towards. Except that it doesn’t. This exhibition is in fact the opposite: a proposal for disorientation and reorientation.
