In 2014 artists Sol Bailey Barker and Gabriella Sonabend travelled to Colombia to spend six months exploring its landscapes and researching and responding to its histories, mythologies and contemporary state. 
Travelling across the vast landscapes of the country, walking the land; Sol created 15 sculptures, which reflected his historical research whilst engaging with the physical and ephemeral nature of place. These sculptural gestures were created using: axe, chisels and fire. The sculptures were photographed and then left in situ, serving as monuments to particular events and myths some of, which are fleeting moments amongst a long history of upheaval. Gabriella wrote a parallel narrative for each landscape, offering alternative windows into these worlds.
This book documents this journey and the works created by Sol Bailey Barker left in situ throughout Colombia. It draws from research, testimonials and the artists' experiences, with documentary photographs and contextual writing.
