The Wayuu are known as the people of the sun, sand, and wind. They are located in the arid Guajira Peninsula in northern Colombia and northwest Venezuela. The Wayúu language is part of the Arawak family and is called Wayuunaiki. One of the most important and characteristic ancestral and cultural value is weaving.

Through the use of interventions and casual travel recordings the artists weave an unfolding and decentered narrative, an assemblage of intensities, endless doing and un-doings in this land of constant sun, sand and wind. Kuenta is part of a series of travelogues that deal with landscapes and what is hidden beneath these landscapes.
