What is the secret power of the set of photographic images that have inspired this work? Is it the materiality of these traces---many of them from the nineteenth century---or will it be the intuition of terrible events that reveal some of the faces portrayed? They are photographic images of human groups exposed to the eyes of other humans. They are the silent traces of the horror of forced transfers and of the real samples of the wild assumptions of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego before the eyes of the apparent nineteenth-century civilized society.
