This exhibition, held at La Galería, Punta Arenas, arises from the artist’s research around literature and text in the visual arts, particularly addressing the problem of adjusting meaning in translation between languages. This takes up what was done in 2013 at the International Symposium on In-Situ Art-Nature Art in Quebec, Canada, and incorporates the recent experiences of its participation in the «Diálogos» projects, which have dealt with the issue of interculturality and recognition of the native peoples in Chile.

The text worked here corresponds to a fragment of the book “Penser / Classer”, by French writer Georges Perec. Its theme responds to rather Western concerns regarding our need for order; however, it seemed to me it was a great challenge to seek at least some remote correspondence in the worldviews, cultures and languages of the native chilean peoples; in this case, in the yagan.
