Juan Fernando Herrán – Campo Santo

March 11, 2011

Juan Fernando Herrán is a sculptor who occasionally does projects involving photography. Campo Santo is a body of work documenting an area of simple crosses. The crosses are hidden in a patch of forest and are made with simple materials found on site. They are made as a remembrance of area residents killed in Colombia’s violence. Making a cross out of two sticks is a very simple but also very powerful sculptural gesture.
