At 1979, after some travels to the South American Forest I planned an Archive dedicated to Amazon to highlight by some art projects (*) the systematic destruction perpetrated by landed proprietors with the connivance of the some governments to build the sadly “famous” trans-Amazonian highroads – real deep cuts on the forest's skin – and for a devastating plan of industrial agriculture which has “taken flash off” the forest. Forest which has not finished crying, has not ended to be sacrificed to favour also today the more wicked interests of unscrupulous persons.
Intervene as you like, on one on more leaves picked on the ground
max size: 30x40 cms
deadline: December 31th 2020
The idea is to create an installation (a space/forest) with the help of the mail artist community.
The works will remain in the Amazon Archive
Online documentation and in the Juliet art-magazine.
