CAPTIVES: FUEGIANS AND PATAGONES IN HUMAN ZOOS
by Christian Báez Allende
"What is the secret power of the set of photographic images that have inspired this work? Is it the materiality of these traces, many of them from the 19th century, or is it the intuition of terrible events that reveal some of the faces portrayed? Photographic images of human groups exposed to the gaze of other humans. They are the silent traces of the horror of the forced transfers and of the real samples of the supposed savages of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego before the eyes of the apparent nineteenth-century civilized society. "

“Filmed over nearly three years, WASTE LAND follows renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from his home base in Brooklyn to his native Brazil and the world's largest garbage dump, Jardim Gramacho, located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. There he photographs an eclectic band of —self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. Muniz’s initial objective was to “paint” the catadores with garbage. However, his collaboration with these inspiring characters as they recreate photographic images of themselves out of garbage reveals both the dignity and despair of the as they begin to re-imagine their lives. Director Lucy Walker and co-directors João Jardim and Karen Harley have great access to the entire process and, in the end, offer stirring evidence of the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit.”
