in the latin american pavilion of the venice art biennale, fernando falconi has created a video installation, ‘olimpo’ (2006), based on the volcano, chimborazo, which is a geographical and historical emblem for both ecuador and the americas. the installation shows a projection of the eternal ice melting away like so many truths and claims, flowing into the lake lying at the giant’s foot.
