from the artist:
"My idea is to discuss paths as drawings..
the memory left by an ancient people that lived in the desert and made this tracks over the sand and stone during hundreds of years - the relation to the displacement of the body on the space could be interpreted as a drawing over the surface of the planet too. It’s been some time I’m working with these concepts and using a GPS to “draw” my displacements when making projects that involves traveling and exploring new places and country borders.
In Atacama, you can find a lot of that stone construction called “apacheta” which means a lot of things, but the most common definition is that is a milestone for ancient paths and has a spiritual meaning of protection of those who crosses that way and contribute with a stone.
they make very small and shy interventions over the landscape and talk about scale too, sometimes they can be used as a ruler to measure distances. So, what you see on the photo is a apacheta that I made myself on the desert soil, and the same place before I make it.
I consider that intervention also a drawing over the landscape and the relations between the imagens and objects are a cyclic relationship (cobblestone, drawing with ink or pencil/graphite, geometric painting with white gouache ink) that talks about time. The idea is to relate the desert stone, which is a milestone and the cobblestone wich is the pavement, the way itself".
