Eugenia Vargas, born in Chile and currently residing in Mexico City, works in the areas of Photography, performance and installation art. Her work deals with the politically charged issues of the border and the effects of pollution on the environment. In her installations, Vargas physically engages the earth and its elements in ritualistic ways - for example, by covering herself or a space with mud, straw, palm fronds or water. Vargas' project for inSITE94 will read as a large filter extending down from the ceiling of the Santa Fe Depot's concourse, using materials derived from the site. -- inSITE94
