movidas of the zero point

with Mujer Artista Collective, Winnipeg

In late 2014, Cecilia Araneda (filmmaker, curator) and Praba Pilar (interdisciplinary artist), informally met with Monica Martinez (visual artist) to talk about our experiences as Latin women artists working in the Prairies of Canada. Over time, Araneda and Pilar emerged as the minders of the process and the initial group of three expanded to involve more artists, including dancers Alexandra Garrido, Camila Schujman and Ilse Torres; visual artists Carolina Araneda and Francesca Carella; and artist Mariana Muñoz. We also made important connections with other local Latin women artists who did not formally enter the collective, but provided us with a heightened awareness that the community of Latin women art practitioners exists much more deeply in this area than we were initially led to believe.

For our collective installation, I created Movidas of the Zero Point (video installation, 2017). This work reflects on Colombian writer Santiago Castro-Gómez’s concept of the ‘hubris of the zero point’ through sharing continent-wide Indigenous resistance to ecocide, and in particular the protection of water, as a common objective that transcends differences of language.

"my anacondacolombia don't: a notecard confessional" is a solo performance I presented at Urban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art Gallery in Winnipeg, Canada on January 22, 2016. Colombia has had the world's longest continuous internal war, causing the displacement of over 5 million people.
