Title:
La vida a pesar de las fronteras (Life despite borders)

Author:
Camila Lobos Diaz

Description:
The installation is made of concrete and mosses, in which the map of Chile is drawn by different cracks casting from the streets. It is a conceptual superposition of the common fractures we find on the street’s pavement, and the lines that we as humanity had created, geopolitical borders. This work puts in relation geopolitical borders and cracks, like wounds in the territory. Lately, I have been particularly aware of the life which sometimes appears inside of them, small plants, that seem poetically strong, in relation with borders, as life resisting borders. I have added endemic mosses to the work, so it is constantly changing because of the life that is growing inside of it. Here, cracks are a place for life in contrast with what borders are in real life.
