CROSS PATTERNS IN MEDIENWERKSTATT // VIENNA // AUSTRIA
At different times in the 20th century, Western ideologies and their prevailing knowledge – embodied in journalists, missionaries, and scholars – have begun a journey from Europe to South America. Their knowledge has left their mark on the ground. These traces return to Europe after decades in the form of new insights and are inscribed in local history. (C.B.)

CROSS PATTERNS is an artistic project from the Chilean-Brazilian artist Bárbara Palomino Ruiz, inspired by the polysemy of the sophisticated geometric patterns called Kené, created by the Shipibo-Konibo, an indigenous group from the Eastern Peruvian Amazon.
In a tactile and poetic way CROSS PATTERNS deals with and questions an invented tradition created among the Shipibo-Konibo in the early 1980s.
