La historia del automóvil

Espacio O Gallery (Santiago, Chile). 2019

Lighting installation and digital photography

An alternative way of telling the political history of Chile in the 1970s. Two French car models, popular in those years, show the republican cultural influence and along with them the idea of the people's car. This utopia would be erased with the entry of neoliberalism in the country. We are talking about two brands and models: the Citröen 2CV and the Renault 4L, renamed in our country as Citroneta and Renoleta respectively.
