Venice Biennale 3: Regina Jose Galindo

Going above and beyond the call of an artist, Regina Jose Galindo (Guatemala) exhibited these eight small sculptures.

‘Regina asked a dentist in Guatemala to make three openings in her molars, and inlay them with national gold of the highest purity. In Berlin, a German doctor extracted all teh gold fillings from her teeth. Thus, with her own body, Gallindo reincarnates the operation of plundering that characterized the Europe-America relation during the period of conquest and colonization.’
