Fordlandia is an extraordinary visual narrative that ponders Henry Ford’s failed utopia in the tropical Brazilian rainforest and the tensions between colonisation, industry and nature. British-born artist, Melanie Smith lives and works in Mexico City. She is internationally acclaimed for her masterly use of different media, including videos, films, photographs, and paintings to explore the legacies of modernism and post-avant-garde movements as they manifest themselves in Latin America.
