This exhibition seeks to question the meaning of nationality and displacement, wondering what it means for a body to belong to a land that has been dominated and violated by western power. This year we welcome seven different creative projects reflecting on the subject.
How can we express the richness and diversity of mixed culture in today's America Latina? Maybe the answer is to ask the question itself?
Curated by Cecilia Kuska & Cordelia Grierson.
Aiku’è Zepé is a project that was born from the need to manifest the artist's concerns as a body and an indigenous woman struggling to survive the chaos left by "civilization". The narrative emerges from the earth, representing the birth of a being in symbiosis with nature; body and nature as inseparable beings that will go through an identity-seeking process.
Zahy Guajajara, is from the Tentehar-Guajajara people, born in Aldeia Colônia, Cana Brava, an Indigenous Reserve in Maranhão. Zahy expresses herself through her art to defend indigenous people and their causes, from those with ill-intent. She communicates in her first language, the Ze'eng eté dialect of the Tupi-Guarani trunk and in Portuguese.
