About the Event
“Hol-Hol Tol” is the “heart of peatlands” in the language of the Selk’nam people, who are indigenous to Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia.
The Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage of Chile and DIRAC are pleased to announce Turba Tol Hol-Hol Tol as the project that will represent Chile at the upcoming 59th International Venice Biennale.
Turba Tol Hol-Hol Tol stands out for being a collective project that, in this time of climate crisis, illuminates a wet fiction, an experimental path towards conserving the peatlands of Patagonia. The pavilion is curated by Camila Marambio, whose transdisciplinary work encourages research, ecological performance, and collaborative sense-making. Turba Tol Hol-Hol Tol brings together a multidisciplinary team of Chilean creatives: Ariel Bustamante, an artist whose work focuses on transhuman conversations and Andean listening practices; Carla Macchiavello, an art historian and educator whose research focuses on contemporary Latin American artistic practices linked to ecology and social change; Dominga Sotomayor, an award-winning filmmaker and academic, andAlfredo Thiermann, an architect whose multisensory work explores the relationship between constructed spaces and history. The artists are joined by ecologist Bárbara Saavedra, Selk’nam writer Hema’ny Molina, cultural producer Juan Pablo Vergara, and additional plurinational collaborators.
