After his 3-months residency in Monthey in the Crochetan Theatre, Sergio Pinzon presents his exhibition in Colombia, in collaboration with Lugar a Dudas. « Tropicalpinismo » presents a series of images from the Valais region (Switzerland), produced from actions taken on site and referring to a specific way of relating to nature, almost like a fiction: the change of a river’s course in favour of productivity, machines that produce snow and make it last longer, artificial light for sunbathing, a sea with artificial waves and a museum to preserve a breed of dog.
« Tropicalpinismo » is also a fictional work in which two regions of the world, the tropics and the Alps, meet. The project raises questions about natural resources, energy, the coexistence of the organic and the technological, nature, culture and colonialism.
His exhibition is to be dicovered from December 2 to January 31 at Flotante, Bogotà, Colombia.
