“The Mouth Full of Silence” compiles in a book format the oil painting productions of the Chilean artist Alejandro Quiroga created between 2016 and 2019. It brings together accurate contributions from theorists Pedro Donoso and Nathalie Goffard, art historian and curator Kimberlee Cole and journalist Cristobal Joannon. Jointly, inspired by the artist’s works, they address issues such as landscape, neoliberalism and the journey through the territory, creating a poetic and sharp analysis of the current state of Chilean geography and its transformation through an extractive system. It also includes dialogues that review the same topics with a fresh and deep reflection on art and nature.

Alejandro Quiroga (Santiago de Chile 1967) is a multidisciplinary artist who’s body of work include the graphic, the sound, the painting and the installation. He builds and develops his story from capitalism and landscape in a journey through the territory. Through different media and disciplines he investigates a visual field where the contemporary assumes the history and the political in its transformation of the natural habitat.
