Project and short novel
2015—2016
This project is a short novel and an exhibition. The writing is a narration, from the point of view of a retired, widowed woman of 65 years that decides to dedicate most of her time to learn how to swim. This argument is the central point of the entire work that, little by little, begins to touch on topics such as faith, the decline of life, memory, and the architectural deterioration of a place. While writing, in a coming and going of creative processes, I was imagining the possibilities that this story had within the language of the Visual Arts. The result is an exhibition that encompassed all the rooms and spaces on the ground floor of the 12:00 Gallery located in the San Felipe neighborhood of Bogotá. A journey, by moments or chapters, in which the viewer could find works in various media and formats, such as drawing, painting, graphic series, and videos that take up, symbolically and metaphorically, parts of the literary text.
