Since 2006, Guillermo Faivovich and Nicolas Goldberg, the Argentinian contemporary artist duo, have been engaged in an intensive and wide-ranging research project — "A Guide to Campo del Cielo" — that forms the basis of their practice. Campo del Cielo is located in northern Argentina and was the site of a meteor shower an estimated 4,000 years ago.
This all-encompassing installation reveals an encounter with a 120-pound meteorite gifted in 2014 to the artists by William Cassidy, a planetary geologist from the University of Pittsburgh. The multi-layered web of connections created in this installation emphasizes the inherent necessities in collaboration as it crosses the boundaries between time, science and art, culture and politics.
Located in Hayden Library, this exhibit is part of the Visual LIT series, a collaboration between ASU Art Museum and ASU Libraries and is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation, Helme Prinzen Endowment, ASU Design and the Arts Library, and Paramo Galeria.
