Miserere: Vestiges of a history
Andrés Orjuela Espacio El Dorado (2016)
Miserere: Vestiges of a history was an exhibition by Colombian artist Andrés Orjuela, displayed in the El Dorado gallery from October until December 2016. In this exhibit the Colombian artist, who lives in Mexico, alluded to the conflict in Colombia by recalling the massacres of Marquetalia (Tolima, 1963), Mapiripan (Meta, 1997) and Bojayá (Chocó, 2002). He also made a reference to the violence in Mexico City through a display of more than a thousand copies of Alarma!, a Mexican magazine known for its sensationalist news coverage of violent crimes. Miserere: Vestiges of a history was a space for reflection and critique, with clues for the spectator in each piece.
