Raw Landscapes

Tolar Grande is a six-block length village located in the middle of the Puna de Atacama desert in Argentina. A vast and uninhabited territory that many scientists compare with Mars. Is 357 km far from the city of Salta and 170 km from Chile`s borders of Socompa. A very small village whose existence is due to geopolitical issues, delineating the border between these two countries. Through this project, I wanted to illustrate the ways in which we inhabit this world. With the past of time, these raw landscapes become more and more deteriorated and dry forcing the local populations to abandon them and move elsewhere. The focus was on finding what kind of traces we leave behind. What footprints? 

Exhibited in the XIV Visual Arts Hall at the Museum of Argentinian Contemporary Art (MACA), in “Contextualise” archive with Der Greif at Pinakothek der Moderne Munich, at Biënnale Limburg 2024 and featured in iGNANT online-magazine.
