Mapeo de Bordes Porosos

Mapeo de Bordes Porosos is an ongoing collaborative experiment between artists in NZ and Chile. We aim to work with poles of reference from South to South, between Chile and NZ, across the Pacific Ocean. And we aim to work in the edges between creative disciplines, working with:

– Porous Boundaries between creative disciplines


– Points of connection across Pacific ontologies that question the
idea of the nation state


– Flows of decolonising practices across the Pacific Ocean


– Creative experiments, critical discussions, tactics for
decolonizing


– Resistances large and small that open up space for imagining


– Spaces of translation and mistranslation as creative strategies


– Art as a practice of imaginative space-making


– Movements that spill ideas beyond disciplinary boundaries

Alys Longley, Macarena Campbell-Parra and Máximo Corvalán-Pincheira participated in the 18 Horas Entre Nosotros project in 2018, with funding from the University of Auckland, NZ, to work in both Santiago and Auckland over November and December. In Santiago we produced the first version of Mapeo de Bordes Porosos, at the Museo de la Memoria and two weeks later we created the second version of this work at the Old Folks Association Hall in Auckland, NZ. In 2019 this developed into the solo work Extracción de Lealtades at the School of the Art Institute Chicago, and El Otro País Que Eres in a site-based work on Avenida Manuel Montt, Santiago.
