Julieth Morales INGLÉS
(1992) Her exhibition at Espacio El Dorado "Pørtsik"
Julieth Morales studies Fine Arts at the Universidad del Cauca. Her artistic practice comes from her experience of the intersection of gender and ethnicity, as an indigenous misak woman. Morales questions notions of identity, and formulates a process of self-knowledge through performance, video, photography, painting, and drawing. The artist subverts traditional rituals from her community through a critical lens, using the body as a denouncing medium. Morales’ work represents the exploration of a hybrid existence, from her identity as a misak woman in a westernized context. As an artist, she seeks to reclaim her own existence and identity as an indigenous woman who challenges or, better, reformulates tradition.
