For the past 6 years, I started a long-distance dialogue with my parents (Pia Krag and Silvio ‘Vito’ Torrijos) in Chile, about their labor with the bees and the land. Pia and Vito have been beekeepers for more than 35 years. Through a WhatsApp group, we exchange reflections, questions and accounts around labor, climate and care. I have listened and learned from their accounts of their work as a chronicle, moving thoughts and evolving over time.

In their work relation to these insects, I found traces of political perspectives and climate accountabilities. As many other workers of the land who engages with living beings, weather and seasons, first-hand knowledge and experience, show the direct consequences of the accelerated transformations of climate conditions and their repercussions in many aspects of life.

This exhibition has thus come together as a collaboration between Pia, Vito and me, where voice messages, videos and woodprints (made by Pia and Vito and sent from Rio Puelo in northern Patagonia) congregate in an effort to portray reflections around reproductive work in the accelerating time of climate crisis we live in.
