Adrián Balseca

(Quito, Ecuador, 1989) Artist. His interest is focused on the study of extractivist dynamics and their environmental impacts on land. Many of his proposals are associated with historical-economic processes that have been relevant for the consolidation of the modern development project. In 2019, he published MIRADOR: Visions on Extractivism (Ecuador 2007 – 2017) (Terminal Ediciones, 2019), a visual memory of the peasant and indigenous leaders who have been criminalized since the beginning of the six mega-mining projects in Ecuador. His most recent exhibitions include: Rethinking Nature (Museo MADRE, Naples, Italy, 2021); 34th São Paulo Biennial: 'Though it's dark, still I sing' (Ciccillo Matarazzo Pavilion, São Paulo, Brazil, 2021); PLANTASIA OIL Co.
