Desborde Gallery - in the belief that good art reflects the social and political reality of its time - begins his 2016 agenda with De-mining. This group show is a call to artists who deals with the subject of mining.  Works in sculpture, drawing, photography, video, installation, among others, make visible the true reality of mining in Latin America.



“While one kilogram of cocaine in Colombia can cost US$ 1000 on the illegal market, a kilogram of gold mined legally or illegally, can cost  US$ 200.000. The tragedy of Rio Doce (Brazil) recently occurred, is a prelude to the disasters that could come. De-mining puts together artists from Brazil, Chile and Colombia, who from very specific places, critically react to the way governments and multinational companies act irresponsibly and cynically against life." Santiago Rueda.

Camilo Bojacá (Colombia), Francilins Castilho (Brazil), Leandro Couri (Brazil), Gonzalo Cueto (Chile), Chócolo (Colombia), Alexandre Guzanshe (Brazil), Francisco Mojica (Colombia), Eduard Moreno (Colombia), Fernando Pertuz (Colombia), Miguel Angel Rojas (Colombia), Julian Santana (Colombia), Hernán Velandia (Colombia).
