Displacements, 2021

The work consists of transparent suitcases heart where heart shaped elements rest inside. The hearts are made terracota and porcelain combined with contaminated soil material collected from different sites of Finland and Brazil where mining industry activities has been reported as responsible for environmental contamination. The work addresses a difficult aspect of the current social-environmental crisis: the contamination of land and water and how it reflects on humans, inviting to reflections on how the geographically distant dystopias deeply affect our immediate reality in both material and immaterial levels, regardless of where we are.
