After residing in Belém do Pará during 2014, the artist returns to the city in 2018 to perform Amuamas at Igarapé Piriquitaquara on Ilha do Combu. In a gesture of persistence, laden with mystical force, he enters the Amazon forest laden with surgical instruments and his menstrual blood – collected over nine months – in search of the great “Sacred Mother of the Forest”, the centenary samaúma tree to perform a ritualistic and intrusive action, leaving a mark embedded in the forest.
