Created in the context of the fourth Land Art Biennal LAM 360°, Galhotra’s project WHO OWNS THE EARTH? observes the consequences of climate change with a focus on Mongolia’s topography. >>

“Galhotra’s project “Who Owns the Earth” aims to investigate changing environments and behaviors to discuss and question the ownership of COMMON resources, including air, water, earth, fire and ether and their free ownership by all members of society; the free ownership subject to change in contemporary times. The artist has used the natural ephemeral medium of cow dung to inscribe the above question in many different sites, starting in Mongolia, to research and understand who actually owns the commons.” (Vibha Galhotra) >>
