(pour regarder la vidéo me contacter svp)

La vidéo Hacedoras de Lluvia est le résultat d’une résidence au caraïbe colombien, à Plataforma Caníbal. La vidéo est l’histoire d’une traversée des régions de Montes de María près de Cartaghène, port d’arrivés des personnes traités comme esclaves, venue d’Afrique, ainsi qu’une région chère à mon enfance. Des rencontres faits autour d’un convite, de la nourriture et du Bullerengue, des chants afrocolombiens transmis par les femmes. Mes questionnements autour de ma partie de mémoire là-dedans, leur formes désobéissantes de vie, leur cosmogonies et leur luttes alimentaires, territoriales, culturelles. Le tout est mis en rapport au voyage, au climat du moment, à l’expérience et à une forme de résiliation partagé avec moi, migrante d’Abya Yala.

El vídeo Hacedoras de Lluvia es el resultado de una residencia en el Caribe colombiano, en Plataforma Caníbal. Es el relato de un viaje por  Montes de María, cerca de Cartagena, puerto de llegada de personas venidas desde África, tratadas como esclavas, así como una región muy querida de mi infancia. Encuentros realizados en torno a un convite, comida y bullerengue, canciones afrocolombianas transmitidas por las mujeres. Mi cuestionamiento en torno a mi parte de memoria en esto, sus formas de vida desobedientes, sus cosmogonías y sus luchas alimentarias, territoriales, culturales. Todo ello está relacionado con el viaje, el clima del momento, la experiencia y una forma de resiliencia compartida con migo, migrante de Abya Yala.

The video Hacedoras de Lluvia is the result of a residency in the Colombian Caribbean, at Plataforma Caníbal. The video is the story of a journey through Montes de Maria, near Cartagena, port of arrival of people coming from Africa, treated as slaves, as well as a very dear region of my childhood. Encounters made around an invitation to make food and sing bullerengue, Afro-Colombian songs transmitted by women. My questioning around my part of memory in this, their disobedient ways of life, their cosmogonies and their food, territorial, cultural struggles. All this is related to the journey, the climate of the moment, the experience and a form of resilience shared with me, a migrant from Abya Yala.

This series of photographs and objects that becomes an installation are the first two parts of the Queer Constellation. The black and white printed photographs are made from queer fetish objects, in a performative gesture of surveying intimate and public places. The images are intervened with words. There emerges a language of Abya Yala's intersectional feminism. One could say a queer and anti-racist eco feminism.
On the other hand, photographs of performances with starry backgrounds are used as metaphors. On the one hand this re-situates the human in a geological and cosmic scale, on the other hand it shows different constellations or worlds co-inhabiting together. A world that contains many worlds as the Zapatistas say.

This installation around a feminist SF tells the history of a queer community, propelled by the global south, which seeks autonomy of its food and health and does not want to reproduce the society of today. It is in search of in search of ancestral and contemporary body memories and ecological knowledge to redefine their territories and boundaries in different parts of the world and in cyber space. This series is imagined as a diversity of constellations where | address issues such as care through medicinal plants, emotional digestion, dancing as a way of performing bodily and self-care tools; gender deconstruction, alternative thoughts and writings.
In this context | program, "Pelvica", as performative laboratory and collective workshops that allow the movement of bodies and thoughts, the conversation and construction of multiple points of view on digestion and non-reproduction, in collaborative care environments. Some of these collective and individual photographs are the result of invitations and the creation of these workshops: body movement, medicinal plants, drawing and automatic writing & collective and individual performance photography. These laboratories were activated in Colombia, with the help of the Traversées grant, at the Tour Mercuriales in Bagnolet within the Plateau Urbain, and at the Cité Internationale des Arts, as a laureate of the Fondation Carasso. This series is currently in post-production, is open and will be continued.
