From the bonfire


"The group exhibition “From the bonfire" reflects on the beyond and the connotations implied by an apparently pagan spirituality, outside the limits of evil. As thus, we present projects based on intimate and personal rituals, such as that of Ana María Devis, who delivers herself in a mystical and contemplative manner to the pictorial activity of intervening in a turtleshell". MARIA WILLS, curator.

Installation result from the contact with tortoise shells, Galápagas, as commonly called in the zone of the Colombian Orinoquía. These turtle shells were found dead and managed properly with the environmental entity of Yopal-Casanare "Corporinoquia", through visits and photographic records that gave account of the responsible extraction and respect with the environment.
