Kon Kon Pi

2010, 13 min, color, sound, HD video

A visual poem performed in Concón, an ancient cultural site on the Chilean coast, where natural preserves are being destroyed by real estate expansion and oil refineries. Kon Kon Pi is a drawing in space, in sand and sea – sometimes made with a stick in sand, sometimes in lines of red wool – eventually washed away by the forces of nature, symbolizing the processes of birth, death, and transformation. Kon Kon Pi was commissioned by Catherine de Zegher and Connie Butler for the exhibition On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
