The decline of capitalism in the opening decade of the 21st century brings about a need to overhaul our current system of life. Suffering from a process of depopulation and an underutilisation of its natural resources for many decades, the countryside is now seen by many as a last resort. Noé Baranda explores these issues through an ethnographic body of work, focusing on a small portion of society he calls “the new settlers of the rural environment.” They consist of people who are taking a backwards journey, retracing their steps in order to start anew, trying not to fall prey to the same errors and looking for a new settling of the rural space. Having experienced the urban way of life, they decide to settle in the countryside to develop values based on the relationship of humans with nature.
Nuevos pobladores del medio rural [New Settlers of ural Environment] explores the links between humans and the Earth. Throughout his artist-in-residency at Museu del Pueblu d’Asturies, Noé Baranda created a suite of video portraits of new settlers based on an aesthetic borrowed from old photographers in which he appropriates framing, poses and spaces.
This is a series of portraits of people that have embraced a way of living, working and organising themselves in the countryside in the freest and more independent way possible.
