TECHNOLOGIES OF ENCHANTMENT 2019 Gasworks Gallery London
Patricia Dominguez explores healing practices emerging from the points where many worlds meet, clash and overlap as a result of colonial encounters. Rooted in the artist’s ongoing investigation of ethnobotany in South America, this first UK solo exhibition invites the viewer to envision possible futures for humans and plants thriving in the cracks of modernity.
This publication designed in collaboration with the artists, explores a specific visual language for her, conceived as an artwork, it includes an essay chronicling an ethnobotanical journey across indigenous lands in Bolivia, Chile and Peru.
The graphic universe created for this exhibition at Gasworks, aims to convey the connection between the artist's cultural and aesthetic background, and a contemporary language, experimenting with digital and three-dimensional elements adapted to the two dimensions of paper.
