Patagonian Orchids: Letter to Chile, 2020
Having found herself in Coyhaique in southern Chile at the onset of the pandemic, Chilean artist Pilar Quinteros decided to stay put. This video is the first in a series of five short films she is making there as she reflects on the coexistence of native plants and animals with foreign species introduced for commercial purposes. For Quinteros, this forced coexistence represents a sense of conflict that resonates with tensions currently being felt and expressed in massive protests by people around the world as a result of abusive public policies, during a global pandemic.
