Representation and Discourse on Ruins in Contemporary Chilean Art

The journal Artishock has just published an article (in Spanish) that presents the results of my research stay at the Centro de Estudios Asiáticos in Pontíficia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2013, thanks to a Santander Universidades grant.

The article discusses representations of ruins in contemporary Chile, focusing on the remnants of the Humberstone and Santa Laura Saltpeter Worksdeclared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, and site-specific projects and installations by contemporary artist Sebastián Preece.

I take the opportunity to publish a few more of the photographs that I took at the saltpeter works site.
