Images from the Other Side of the World


What does Patagonia evoke? A land on the other side of the world, the myth of giant Patagonians, legendary pre-historic beasts.

The catalogue, like the exhibition, presents multiple representations, accounts and myths attached to the southern tip of the American continent. It approaches these territories by following a 'geography of fiction' in which imaginary representations and tangible realities five centuries old are put into perspective.
