Chilean Pavilion at the London Design Biennale 2023 (Design)

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review


Reflecting on the extractivist processes of the logging industry in Chile, ‘Materia Prestada’ is a sensory installation highlighting novel ways of working with wood cellulose as a bio medium. The installation features seven suspended bio-textile works made with natural fibres and cellulose sheets, the largest of which will gradually degrade during the exhibition to reveal hidden layers of information for visitors to discover.
