Arriba!

Arriba!

“At the stunning Paradise Bay, the “Arriba!” installation by Paul Rosero Contreras was conceived as a kind of tropical time capsule, taking us back 50 million years to when Antarctica itself had a temperate climate. Fossils of tropical flora have been discovered in the area. “I was looking for a time clash between past, present and future, and I wanted the piece to have a sense of being lost in its context,” said Contreras.”
