Publication Date 28 Nov 2020

Carolina Caycedo's (born 1978) immense geographic photographs, lively artist's books, colorful hanging sculptures and other works are not merely art objects, but gateways into larger discussions about how we treat each other and the world around us. She confronts topics such as the privatization of rivers and other bodies of water, territorial rights of Indigenous groups, the use of violence by police and the environmental, economic and social impacts of dams on local communities. This book showcases Caycedo's process with lavish illustrations of her work, including stills from her video 'Apariciones / Apparitions' (2018), selections from her 'Serpent River Book' (2017) and images of her celebrated 'Cosmotarrayas' series.
