ADRIÁN VILLAR ROJAS
The bird nests of Villar Rojas belong to the series From the Brick Farm. The title refers to the moment when his team, in a brick factory in Rosario, found nests of the red ovenbird. The animal makes beautiful structures that look similar to ancient mud ovens designed by the early-agrarian peoples of Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. A striking fact here is that the birds always build their nests on human structures and restore them permanently. No matter where you find these nests, you will not be able to tell the authentic or artificial nests apart. In this way, de Villar Rojas invites us to reflect on how closely natural and human artefacts are intertwined. In collaboration with Beaufort.
