Untitled (Golden Green – Greening Gold)
By focusing on the relationship between gold mining and bird populations, Fritzia Irízar’s work highlights the disastrous effects of the global mining industry in the long term. Literally reconfiguring and poisoning the environment, gold mining has devastated, killed, and led to the forced migration of a massive number of bird species. As part of the piece, visitors are asked to interact with the installation recording a call of birds. They can also bring gold objects to be painted green, weighed and referenced to a conversion table of environmental degradation per gram of gold.
