I made the series Cultural Landscapes with scanned or downloaded images from European paintings of landscapes, digitally joined with my own photographs of Latin-American sights (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Peru)
My production has landscape as its central element as well as the intersections between the natural and the created; questioning that even what we consider natural is actually the result of a figment of culture. Through collage and photography, I show how the same territory can be shaped up to convey a different landscape to each new viewer.
Our observation is conditioned by the multiplicity of ways in which landscape has been represented along the history of art; therefore we do not observe our surroundings in a static, unique and truthful way, but as a plastic production. The observation of the artist is a possibility, one look at the world.
The way in which environment is represented is the shape the world takes up.
