Eliana Otta – Affluents and derivatives and Fossil of the future

Eliana Otta

Born 1981
Lives and works in Lima

I pay attention to established associations between details that seem to be simple but are able to account for complex processes of change in our societies. I give hints about the diverse memories, affections and tension that overlap us.

Afluentes y derivados (Affluents and derivatives)

The images show the river Corrientes, which lies in the Peruvian jungle; a region of environmental conflicts due to the constant leakage of oil. Crayon, a derivative of the material, covers the color but can be removed, even if some remainings can not completely disappear.

Fósil del futuro (Fossil of the future)

I pay attention to the gardeners who move around transporting their heavy tools in order to take care of the gardens belonging to the middle and high class. As the kings out there, they circumvent the infernal traffic of Lima, a city in the middle of the desert, suffocated by its emanations. Their bikes represent their job: a simple but important work, which adapts to its context overcoming hostility. I asked myself what would happen if they would be the lone survivors of some world-wide ecological crisis.
