Giovani Fabián Guerrero’s artworks reveal collective memories of his Cherán community (Mexico). In 5 talamontes retenidos (5 seized loggers), he recalls the action led by women defending the forests from timber trafficking on April 15, 2011. On that day, five illegal loggers were caught, bound to a tree, and nearly lynched by the local community, which is afflicted by corruption and forestry crimes.
