Turba Tol Hol-Hol Tol is an experimental path focusing on the conservation of peatlands, the most efficient natural ecosystem for regulating the planet’s climate yet one of the most overlooked by research. In the language of the Tierra del Fuego’s indigenous Selk’nam people, Hol-Hol Tol means the “heart of peatlands”. The exhibition including artists Ariel Bustamante, Carla Macchiavello, Dominga Sotomayor, and Alfredo Thiermann immerses us in a material and ancestral experience of the Patagonian peatlands through a large multisensory installation and scientific experiment. Profoundly rooted in the environmental humanities, this project aims to both raise the profile of peatlands and outline possible courses of action at a political, social, and ecological level.
