José Andrés Alvarado, Art Agenda
Prats’ Chilean pavilion is an exhibition composed of three works: Chaitén (2008), born from the largest volcanic eruption in Chile; 03:34:17 which refers to the devastating earthquake in Chile in 2010; and Great South (2011) which was constructed in the Antarctic Chilean territory, and consists of an installation of neon letters that reference explorer Ernest Shackleton’s 1911 expedition to Antarctica.
