CHICO SANTOS: Invasion (Duwamish)

Location: Terminal 107 Park

Chico Santos is a video and installation artist based in Southern Brazil whose work addresses the encroachment of urban areas onto the natural landscape. He has exhibited internationally, and his trip to Seattle to create work for Duwamish Revealed was his first time in the U.S. Chico created a tiny city on top of a fallen tree that alluded to the many layers of settlement and history on the site, and made a statement about the charming and destructive duality of human nature.

Special thanks to Patricia and Nate Cormier for their hospitality during Chico’s stay in Seattle!
