Book Sculptures Installation View
Inspired by the book Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent by Eduardo Galeano, I created six book sculptures that tell stories that don't appear in history books. For this project, I am using books written in the early 20th century by American and European explorers who came to South America and Peru. I insert in them an image of a glass half full with a resource linked to extraction, the red tape represents the blood of the people who died in those genocides.
