Árboles torcidos

How to survive the homogenization and simplification of landscapes? This publication is an attempt to rethink the experience of being in the forest from a critical perspective through an exploration of co-habitation aesthetics that promote the flourishing of natural and cultural diversities to think about/from/and through a forest, other possible futures. When opening these pages, seek to slowly drift through the polyphony of voices created by the writings of Maya Errázuriz, Seba Calfuqueo, José Tomás Ibarra, María Lara Millapan and Agencia de Borde (María/Rosario Montero, Paula Salas and Sebastián Melo), who in various ways collectively shared forest experiences that became materialized through exhibitions under the title Árboles torcidos (Twisted Trees). Available in english and spanish.

Expanded Nature: Making the Invisible Visible

The digital book "Expanded Nature: Making the Invisible Visible" gathers different creative perspectives on nature to seek to formulate a deeper and more comprehensive definition of what we understand as natural heritage. The publication is the result of the exhibition of the same name that was presented between 2020 and 2021 at the La Moneda Cultural Center (CCLM), in Chile, which brought together sounds, textures, dance, images and stories to present the forgotten and invisible of heritage natural: from the scientific to the cultural, from the individual to the collective, from the concrete to the spiritual.

Against The Drought of Signs. Etienne de France

Small publication created by Etienne de France in collaboration with Chilean anthropologist Diego Milos and Mapuche poet Lionel Lienlaf for his installation "Against the Drought of Signs" presented in October 2019 in the National Museum of Fine Arts of Santiago within the exhibition "The Third Landscape" for the 14 Media Art Biennial. A multi-translation of the welsh poem "Kat Godeu" (The Battle of Trees) preserved in the 14th-century manuscript known as the Book of Taliesin that tells the story of Gwydion, mythical figure and magician, who encourages a multitude of forest plants to fight as his army. The Spanish and Mapuzungun version coexist alongside the Welsh and English to unveil many levels of interpretation, be they political, historical, literary, ritualistic, or plant related knowledge.
