In this exhibition, Colombian artist Juliana and writer Sandra, aim to create a space where the viewer feels displaced and through this experience can relate to those living in a foreign land. Further exploring the concept of displacement, the artists reference colonial times, emphasizing ‘Mestizo’ a Spanish term that refers to a person with mixed heritage. This term comes with a cultural wound, product of a painful disconnection from ancestry, something we all carry as colonizers, colonized, and settlers.
