On the hill Placeres, in Valparaiso, above the road which leads to the city of Viña del Mar, there is a house. It was the house of my grandparents. From 1975 to 1982 their four daughters left the country, three went to France, one to Australia. When my grandparents died, 20 years ago, the house became uninhabited. Two years ago I travel for the first time alone to Chile, I arrive at the house and a friend of the family opens the door for me, I stay alone few hours before going to walk in the city. It's the National Day, the streets are empty, only the stray dogs accompany me. I have the feeling that I have to do something with this house, to bring it something. I start to imagine a project called casa Placeres : to gather artists and researchers, to gather views and words around this place.
