What to do with garbage from the shores of Madrynenses?
The problem of garbage on the coast is not new. Two of the most important tourist cities of Chubut, Madryn and Puerto Pirámides, continue to be the epicenter of concern among scientists in the area.
The lack of awareness in society and of public policies leads to the encounter with sea and sand postcards with waste. Also, with marine fauna affected by the effects of pollution. In this context, two women decided to join together to do “something” with the rubbish of the Madrynenses coasts and to open a space for debate and reflection .
About the beginnings of the project and fieldwork
A CONICET scientist and a plastic artist worked for more than a year to raise awareness of the hand of art. The project “Poetics on the sidelines” was the beginning of a great road that they traveled together.
In Puerto Madryn (Chubut), artist Daniela Mastrandrea and the researcher María Cruz Sueiro (CESIMAR-CONICET) were the promoters of this project. Despite having different looks, find a way to promote a dialogue between science, art and education.
Daniela remembers those first sensations during her exits to the middle. As he walked the beach, he watched the large amounts of garbage, collected what he could, and a bitter taste invaded his mouth. She tried to put into words those feelings that she was experiencing. I wanted to connect with the environment and decipher those feelings that invade her.
Maria, instead, she sought to gain objectivity. For her, the work field was essential, as was the systematization of sampling.
The garbage made museum
After a year and a half of work, they managed to concretize what called the Museum of Holotypes of the Anthropocene. His name was born as a prefix of your project, seeking to incorporate scientific language into art.
The itinerant and virtual exhibition exhibited a collection of objects collected from the Patagonian coast, which were subsequently resignified. There was a lot of previous work, conservation and classification to based on scientific information related to environmental problems, recalls Oh, Mary.
Thus, the museum sought to simulate a traditional science museum Natural. Not only were the pieces of art made by Mastrandrea, but also the objects extracted directly from the beach were presented. The idea was to symbolize the human presence in the environment.
A curious fact is that a room in this itinerant museum was called a “bag”. There, the Madrynenses placed some species that they built with the plastic bags collected on the coast.<
