119 stones collected from Macondo, Vienna, clear nylon wires and the Chilean border
5 x 1 x 3.5 m
Macondo is the place in Vienna where the first Chilean political refugees from the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet arrived, baptized with that name in the seventies by the same community. In “Existencia en el borde”, the geopolitical border of Chile is built from 119 stones collected from the grounds of Macondo, installed as pendulums from the ceiling of the exhibition space. The result is a mobile and fragmented border of Chile.
