Stitched Stories (Debbie Hodge)
Last updated 7 years ago
León Ferrari (Argentine, b. 1920) and Mira Schendel (Brazilian, b. Switzerland, 1919–1988) are considered among the most significant artists working in Latin America during the second half of the twentieth century. Their works address language as a major visual subject matter: the visual body of language, the embodiment of voices as words and gestures, and language as a metaphor of the worldly aspect of human existence through the eloquence of naming and writing.
My work seeks to evoke memory and communicate a sense of emptiness and fragility as well as highlight the drama of many life stories.
Miriam Londoño visual texts where words rather than written on paper are themselves made of paper through structures made up of lines in space, allowing light to filter through and shadows to emerge.
