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.

'Synchronized Serpent' is the result of a collaboration between Cecilia Bengolea and the Jamaican national swimming team, whose current coach is Olympic gold medalist Olga Novokshchenova. Hybrid creatures - between land and water - synchronise in the Caribbean Sea at the Alligator Head Foundation in Jamaica. Silhouettes and backgrounds dance in harmony. The soundtrack is a mix of recordings of underwater creatures, marine mammals and ambience sound pollution, like the sound of jet skis and cruises.

Cecilia Bengolea (Buenos Aires, 1979) translates her practice of anthropological community dance through video, sculpture and installation. She conceives performance as a form of animated sculpture that allows her to become both object and subject simultaneously. Infused with the symbolic energies found within nature and empathic relationships, her compositions are formed around ideas of the body – both individually and collectively – as a medium.
