Alejandra Prieto – Lágrimas negras, 2011

Charcoal and steel

This project by the Chilean artist Alejandra Prieto has been made with charcoal and steel. Charcoal in Chile has not only shown poverty’s most depraved face in some of the Southern regions, but as well as its indiscriminated extraction. This is why charcoal by becoming a decoration object generates certain dichotomies about its history, form and use.

Lithium is a non metal mineral which is found mostly in natural brines, oil-bearing wells, geothermal fields y sea water. It is the lightest mineral with half of water’s density and which possesses excellent conditions for heat and electricity conduction. As Chile has 40% of the world reserves its extraction has – without precedents – become a successful market in the mining history of our country.

We mourn our friend and benefactor, the artist and philosopher Prince Rudolf zur Lippe, who died on 6 September 2019.

He made thoughts dance and people move.

During the exhibition in Erfurt, which shows works from the cycle "Learning from the Birds" in the church of the Augustinian monastery, he wanted to talk to us about it and how it is linked to Goethe and Alexander von Humboldt.

We will miss him greatly, not only there.
