‘folded eggs’, latest
“It is almost 45-years ...”
“It is almost 45-years since jets bombed Santiago’s neoclassical La Moneda and President Allende took his own life. A New Zealand friend was detained at the time of the coup with thousands of others in the city’s Estadio Nacional, where Chile thrillingly defeated Argentina in the 2015 Copa América final.”
‘folded eggs’ is an artist book, a modest meditation on history and memory, with 53 colour images made in Chile, from Valparaíso to Santiago, and a concise essay across Allende and Pinochet to New Zealand’s colonial wars — self-published @vapourmomentabooks
