The voice-over by Cristobal Alcibiades guides the audience through Huayllay, a stone forest near Cerro de Pasco in Peru. The 16th-century city is being swallowed up by the country’s largest mine. While he describes the geology and culture of his birthplace, we witness the devastating effects of mining. The kilometer-wide hole tragically links the affectionate voice and the desolating landscape.


BIO

Ximena Garrido-Lecca (b. 1980 in Lima, Peru) lives and works between Lima and Mexico City. Configured as videos, sculptures, and installations, her projects explore the sociocultural impact of colonialism and globalization on the past and present of Peru. Drawing on techniques and materials of the country’s indigenous cultures, she attempts to create narratives that resist modernization processes. She has exhibited at International Biennale of Arezzo (2013), Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev (2014), and 10th Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre (2015). 

The work is part of guest curator Gabriel Bogossian’s screening program The Lost Nature, Works from the Videobrasil Historical Collection.
