Write up of the exhibition:
“Saknussemm” is a series of works focused on stones and marbles inspired by Verner’s “Journey to the Center of the Earth”. This masterpiece described the early days of colonial extractivism and its relationship with pioneering expeditions of geologists and natural scientists. In this work, there are details of XVIII century marbled papers representing both fictional and real precious stones discovered from the most remote places in the World.
