Patricia Domínguez Chilean, b. 1984
Patricia Domínguez's practice interwines myths, symbols, and rituals with ideas of extraction, cultural appropriation and the destruction of natural heritage.
Her 2019 exhibition, Green Irises, at Gasworks, London presented a multi-screen video installation alongside a series of altars and totem figures. Combining ethnographic surrealism and science fiction, Domínguez’s work embraces a range of myths and rituals shaped by extractivism and global finance, from the syncretic worship of Our Lady of Cerro Rico, an infamous silver mine in Bolivia where eight million natives died, to the archaeological museum inside Scotiabank’s head office in Cusco, built on top of the ruins of an Incan palace.
In 2020, Domínguez is to complete the Delfina Foundation residency in London. During this residency, she will develop a new commission for a forthcoming exhibition at Wellcome Collection in London opening in May 2021. Taking the archives of Wellcome Collection as a starting point, Domínguez will critically engage with the limits of science and shamanism through a focus on spirituality and visionary plants within the context of the current cosmologies of neo-colonialism in South America.
