Living Organisms for Living Spaces / Organismos vivos para espacios domésticos 2017

Living Organisms for Living Spaces examines the conceptual considerations around material by analyzing ‘objects’ – specifically fabric and textile ornaments – from Colombia’s material culture.  Colombia is a country built on Catholic beliefs, thus the project exploresthe symbolic meaning of these objects that have both a Catholic and colonial legacy in society.  

There are two concepts that underline this body of work: ‘Materiality’ and ‘The Uncanny’.  I intertwine the unfolded material reflection and the appropriation of the uncanny. This strategy transforms objects into something new, disrupting their prior meanings and functions.
