River Books / Libros Río, 2016

Installation view at 32nd São Paulo Biennial


These hand drawn books have an accordion format and are handbound by the artist.

They interpret indigenous rituals and myths of rivers in dispute.  The riverbed is used as the central element of the written and visual narration.

Some of them are based on actual events, and they describe the political context of these ecosystems.
