UN MUNDO QUE SE ESCURRE BAJO LOS PIES
Centro Cultural La Moneda and the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage are pleased to invite you to the opening of Un mundo que se escurre bajo los pies, a contemporary photography exhibition that brings together works by 15 Chilean artists from different generations acquired by the Undersecretary of Cultures and Arts during the pandemic.
Rita Ferrer’s curatorship addresses image and imagination in a convulsive world, under a perspective of uncertainty and insecurity as generalized feelings of an era. The exhibited works compose a mosaic of images where native flora, scenes of everyday life, hidden meeting places: surroundings and rooftops or people “without a roof” emerge; scenes of a Chile from the past that show the precariousness development and labor of those years; vestiges of cultures and constructions that allude to a time that is reminisced with nostalgia; the imminence of radical changes in the urban and natural landscape; the extinction of neighborhoods and their replacement with immense cement masses and more.
