Ana Alenso’s solo exhibition deals with the connection between the wealth of resources, in this case especially gold, and the longstanding crisis on the ground in Venezuela. Alenso presents a sculptural landscape in which the mechanisms and consequences of mining are revealed as signs of self-destruction and as an anthropocentric modus operandi. The artist is concerned with „denouncing an ecocide“. The contradictions and uncertainties caused by economic turbulence and the permanent export of resources are translated to the exhibition space aesthetically and haptically in a sculptural „machine“.
