GUAYOTA · The Vanishing of Light
Opening: Oct 7th 7pm
GUAYOTA is a free, non-commercial photo project by BAM Photographers, shot and directed in Tenerife at the beginning of 2022.
According to the legend, GUAYOTA, a malignant deity, kidnapped the sun and locked it up inside Teide which plunged the world into darkness.By praying to the god Achamán, humans could save the sun by locking GUAYOTA away in Teide, instead.
In this modernised version of the saga, GUAYOTA is still, to this day, trying to escape by deceiving humans. GUAYOTA uses hidden signs and objects like a mirror, in attempt to reopen Teide and cast darkness across the land once again.
