500añosdesilencio | El Lado Oculto de la Luna (The Hidden Side of the Moon) by artist Karen Navarro presents a nuanced reflection on Indigenous identity in Argentina.
It is an exploration through installation and portraiture that makes use of modern technologies to weave, with a historical tinge, the concept of beauty and representation.
The first site-specific installation created by the artist consisting of a mural, braids made of synthetic hair and video mapping images.
The work considers the process of reclaiming one’s own indigenous heritage, the liminal space we inhabit, and the fluidity of cultural change that creates a transformation towards the future.
