EASTER ISLAND
1x52’

Fascinating by its stone statues of cyclopean dimensions Easter Island is presented today as the archetype of an ecological disaster of great magnitude. For the past 10 years a multidisciplinary scientific team has been studying and excavating the island, dating samples and re-examining historical documents to better understand its past. Not such investigation had ever been conducted before. The history of Easter Island would not be that of a collapse but rather an adaptation of this population facing a climate crisis and its gradual shift towards a new social and religious order where the ancestors were replaced by the gods.
