In the past

The Thought of Fantastic Figures (2013)


“This body of work seeks, as engagé art (socially committed), to make a critique of the magical, submissive or alienated thinking. It aims to generate questions about selfish and evasive behavior, about consumerist, religious, new age, social network, and sports fanaticisms, which suspends us in a mist of opium, carrying us away from the essentials.”

2070 (2013)

“The surrounding nature is an extension of our bodies, lives and aspirations. According to the science of ecology, there are some basic steps we can implement to help nature regain its balance, so that in 2070, the earth will still be a friendly place for our descendants.”

Portraits of a lineage (2013)

“Recently, under the umbrella of Lantern Foundation, which focuses its efforts in making visible social and ecological issues, I went to visit a place along the Bogota River, where chariot men (urban waste recyclers) live in dens with their horses, pigs, chickens, dogs and cats. There it seemed that a bomb of waste, debris, feces and flies had detonated. Sadness, toxicity and dispossession are interwoven. The smell of the stables, from burning plastics, and from methane of the death Bogota River, forces a thick qualm: 

Eyes, teeth and nails, I wish to vomit!”

The Canadian Dream (2013)

“The present ethno-photographic and testimonial essay has the intention to inspire critical thinking on both the success stories and the misfortunes surrounding the political and social process of immigration in Canada. Photography, as a political instrument in a country that protects freedom of speech as any other of its essential civil liberties, becomes a medium for conversing with its residents.”

Girls and Boys who make Boys and Girls (2013)
Adolescent pregnancy has become a public health issue in Colombia. The lack of sexual education, absence of opportunities, intra family violence, and many other factors, contribute to generate a situation in which one of five girls between ages 12 to 19, become pregnant.

We gathered 20 illustrative photographs where adult women represent adolescent ones. The objective is to sensitize vulnerable young men and women within an itinerant exhibition in schools and cultural centers, complemented with an instructive talk.

Sacred Flow
March 8, 2013, International Women's Day, after 6 months of work, we exhibited a fine arts photographic project whose purpose was to raise awareness about violence against women in Colombia. We sought to turn the public eye towards women through nude female bodies, wearing drawn masks representing seven male iconic figures of political relevance, who were murdered.

During the exhibition there were three performances related to gender issues, conducted by Alejandra Arciniegas, Ginna Garcia and Tatiana Samper.

The Inner Walls of the Self/City (2010)

"Cities and their communities are the vital spaces for immigrants to start anew. Forests of unknown buildings, in and out, surround newcomers, while the affections of their origins remain deep-rooted in their minds. For some, integration may be less painful and encompassed by success. Others may take several years before they attain a feeling of being “at home.” While others, still, battle for a dignified territory at their new country, seeing it crumble beneath their feet, amid endless visits to community centers and welfare institutions."

Déjeuner chez le monde (2010)

A photographic project was produced in Montreal in 2010, in relation to the immigration dynamics in Canada, under the patronage of Latinarte and Hors les murs. The work was exhibited at the Maison de la culture de Parc-Extension and the Segal Centre in the same city. It was also selected for the five yearlong itinerant exhibition, Canada: Day 1, starting 2013.

The images were exhibited in Calgary, New York and Montreal. They highlighted social and cultural dynamics in relation to pornography, its causes and effects amid a patriarchal society.
