Since 2006, Guillermo Faivovich (b. 1977, Buenos Aires) and Nicolás Goldberg (b. 1978, Paris) have been engaged in an intensive and wide-ranging research project—A Guide to Campo del Cielo—that forms the basis of their practice. Campo del Cielo is located in northern Argentina and was the site of a meteor shower an estimated 4,000 years ago. Faivovich & Goldberg combine the roles of scientist, historian, anthropologist, and even bureaucrats, to realize projects that offer new ways of seeing and experiencing the terrestrial results of a long ago cosmic event, as well as thinking about its historical and cultural significance. Over more than a decade, the duo has produced a diverse body of work, laboriously mining the particularities of a singular event, Faivovich & Goldberg illuminate broadly resonant themes—the dynamics between an object and its documentation, the inherent complexities of institutional histories, and the complicated personal, cultural, and national relationships that develop with artifacts.
