Sun in Cancer is a site-specific installation comprised of sound, light and mixed media sculptures. 

It is constituted by six audio channels, sound-sculptures, tridimensional visual scores casted in steel and the total transformation of the glass surface of the space. This project is an evocation of the work of Johanna Magdalena Beyer (1888- 1944).  Reaching into the past and drawing connections to present-day existence, Sun in Cancer creates a counter-hegemonic genealogy of ways of being-in-the-world and is an homage to Beyer's revolutionary (and lost) political opera Status Quo (1938).
