The Desert Inside comprises a series of ‘Solo’ exhibitions in isolated locations. From Wadi Rum, Jordan, to Purmamarca, Argentina, carrying solitary games and toys, Mandrile adopts the vast desert as a playground. The journey becomes a subject of dialogue with fellow artists, writers and curators, as a reflection of the lonely experience in a transient condition, as artists and audience, as protagonists and witnesses. Rooted in the awareness of the sense of

‘incompleteness’ experienced by displaced subjects, the project documents the constant flux of the ‘inkless’ imprint

of ludic artifacts in moving backgrounds. The resulting graphic evidences unveil new aesthetics of displacement, aesthetics that search for a translation of the migrant’s wound.

As part of this project, Latitud is a collaborative publication between Chilean novelist Lina Meruane and Argentinean Visual Artist Cecilia Mandrile, emerging from dialogues around a parallel journey at both sides of the Andes
