COLOMBIA, 1983

Yosman Botero’s plastic proposal takes up some constants of his work such as cartography and the questioning of power relations, a set of doors and mirrors in which limits are blurred. Architecture and landscape are again protagonists framed in the study of the ecology of war, this time taking images belonging to the declassified archives of the CIA during the fifties, which correspond to the period of the Cold War. There, some soldiers turn their backs on the viewer while a town that does not exist disappears before their eyes. It is the nuclear testing ground in which the United States measured its devastation capacity.
