Restoration of the Church of San Pedro de Atacama
Finding of paintings from the late nineteenth century
In June 2014 began the restoration project of the church of San Pedro de Atacama, regional heritage and declared a National Monument in 1951.
In mid-January 2015 painted with natural pigments under a series of synthetic enamels located in the altarpiece of the church figures were found. In the tabernacle were two archangels painted on their doors, which are in the process of dating and rescue. Their preliminary dating places them in the late nineteenth century.
The restoration of the church is made with participation of professionals from different specialties and community representatives.
Art in Atacama
The poetics brought upon by this installation opens up to possibilities; a new optimism be- gins to arise in the work of the artist. Despite oblivion transmission is possible and therefore so is the preservation of a life that once existed. This installation also seeks to build bridges and unite worlds through culture, establishing a link through art between the community of Talabre and the contemporary art world. What one is able to see in the museum in Santiago is perhaps a myth, a faraway place with hundreds of bells that function as an image or a heart beat where all that remains in the end is just a sound. The relationship established in the work between birth and commemoration through sound reflects the cycle of life, a place the artist views as his own eventual tomb as well as the tomb of all those who are present.
Mysteries of Atacama
