(se)cura humana [or (if)human healing] is a movement of urban and aquatic artistic guerrillas, headed by Flavio Barollo (video artist and performer) and Wellington Tibério (geographer and doctoral student at USP). We have Jeferson Rogério (biologist and environmental builder at AcquaFlui Soluções Ecológicas) as a direct partner in our work. And several other partners connected in all our actions.

From an environmental activism, the work of the collective (se)cura materializes in direct actions in the urban space, having the water element as its main motto. We use multiple languages in our work, such as: urban installations/sculptures, audiovisual (documentary and video performance), performance/happening and music.

Reflecting the dryness of the human at different levels, activating new (or old) ways of dealing with society with the environment, clashing concepts and standards and provoking a questioning look at the urban way of life that we have developed over the last few decades, the (if )human healing aims to give materiality to dreams and utopias related to the way we relate to the water element in urban space.

Whether by building lakes in the middle of concrete, installing water parks with pools on the sidewalks or activating fountains with spring water that are lost in the city, the collective carries out actions that rub against the positivist-developmentalist sense of the city, calls into question the that is “legal” and “illegal”, activates memories of a city gone by and points to another city to come.
