Lina Mazanett e David Quiroga


In their projects, Lina Mazenett (Bogota, 1989) & David Quiroga (Bogota, 1085) explore the interrelationship between organisms and the misnamed “resources” of the environment, their distribution and resignification through culture. The artists reflect on the temporality, origin, and symbolism of some fundamental elements of the world economy, such as various minerals and oil products that are very present in our daily lives, connecting humans with remote geological times.

Their practice encompasses a wide range of mediums and is inspired by a dialogue between the mythology of Amazonian people and certain fields of western science such as geology, astronomy, and economy. Through their work they try to reconnect ordinary and everyday elements with ancient knowledge and mythical time.
