GAIA GUARDIANS 2020 Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum Madrid
Gaia Guardians is an interactive publication that emerges from three years of Patricia Dominguez research— a personal journey through conflicts connected to the issue of water in Latin America. Its origins lie in Bolivia, where drought and fires in the Chiquitanía region have destroyed more than 4 million hectares of forest in recent years. In her native Chile, Domínguez reached out to eco-social movements and raised awareness of people who have been blinded by the police during protests.
Conceived as a publication in relation to the exhibition space inside the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum, where the graphics are changing throughout the format, with a vertical reading following the structure of a vertical water jet, which starts from the fire and ends in a "spirit of water”
