What connections could be made between embodied desires and the spirals of open-pit mining?
Copper Tales is an installation that approaches the mining operation through the sensitive bodies that participate in it. Based on the site of the Rio Tinto mines (Spain) crossed by an acidic river, the project puts in relation different actors contributing to the extraction of raw materials. The traces -archaeological, geological, human, bacterial- marked on the grounds are projected together in a narrative to be written.
Copper Tales is on view at Photoforum Pasquart/Biel from 04.12.22-15.01.23
