“THE TRANSITION FROM DICTATORSHIP TO DEMOCRACY CORRESPONDS TO THE IMAGE THAT DISAPPEARS IN THE PRINTMAKING PROCESSES (ETCHING) AND THEN REAPPEARS (PRINTED ON THE PAPER). MY WORK CALLS TO THE NEED FOR A SEARCH FOR JUSTICE AND TRUTH, WHICH BY NO MEANS IS FINITE OR TERMINAL, BUT RATHER AN INITIATIVE THAT EXISTS IN AND WITH TIME."

The-right-to-know: Under the U.S. Sky [silo], is an installation of 35 portraits in the exterior of a silo which refers to the United States intervention in Chile during the military dictatorship (1973-1990). The work is based on information taken from the declassified documents provided by the National Security Archive within its Chile Project, which began in the late 1990s following when Pinochet was detained in London from crimes against humanity. The identities of some of the disappeared disintegrate by the sun and rain over time, under the sky of the United States.
