Campo Visual [Marcos Martín Bauzá]
Title of the work: Visual Field.
The piece is in turn a landscape, as well as a visual poem with deep political connotations. Soy is the crop par excellence in Argentina today. Behind its sole presence, different macroeconomic variables, environmental notions, as well as aspects related to food and health can be observed. I used this biological material as a political signifier, loaded with questions and important debates for the current national task such as the redistribution of wealth, deforestation, the desertification of soils due to lack of crop rotation, the use of glyphosate as a toxic pollutant for the human health, the use of herbicides that is reducing the number of pollinating insects to alarming values, historical events such as resolution 125/2008 and its implications for the country, and so on.
