COVERAGE I FOUND U MERCEDES, URUGUAY, FEBRUARY 2022
The article comments on Lo Que La Tormenta Nos Dejò a collaborative response by I FOUND U Collective to two events: the Tornado de Dolores (EF3-EF4), and the COVID-19 pandemic. In 15 minutes, on April 15, 2016, the Tornado De Dolores changed the lives of the community of Dolores forever. The global pandemic has shifted the way people around the world interact with one another.
Dolores based member Marisa Bernotti created a fluid installation of both artworks and selected other materials from I Found U Collective members and her own material structures. Moving and changing, like a gust of wind, this installation moved to its second location in Uruguay, Museo Alejandro Berro in Mercedes, Soriano. Here, objects, structural elements, and artworks accumulated in two locations: in the outside yard and interior space.
