Ana Gonzalez Rojas


Health Battalion

In this project, the artist worked with a group of six soldiers wounded in combat by anti-personnel mines and explosives. She held workshops for “memory and reconstruction” in the “Batallón de sanidad” (Health Battalion) and afterwards developed a work based on the images and experiences that the soldiers, now blinded by anti-personnel mines, found they shared. This same workshop was later held with rural residents wounded by anti-personnel mines. The images of river/nature/innertubes/balls connect between the two groups and are nearly the same among soldiers and rural residents.
