Residence in Santa Fe de Antioquia
Installation and document on video
As a result of the social impact and concerns that excessive gold mining is creating in the municipality of Santa Fe de Antioquia, Patricia Lara invited people from different disciplines of knowledge with whom she organized a series of workshops and exercises that allowed them to know their historic memory and to get close to several areas of Santa Fe. Together, they compiled knowledge that was put by all the participants on a series of artistic objects: floating houses full of maps and drawings. Some of these floating houses were taken to the museum, the others stayed with the community so as to give continuity to the project.
