The work consists of four see-through travel suitcases with heart-shaped elements resting inside.  The hearts are made of terracotta 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: how the contamination of land can affect human society in many aspects. The work conceptually invites to reflections on how the geographically distant dystopias deeply affect our immediate reality in both material and immaterial levels, regardless of where we are.
