A PICTORIAL ESSAY ABOUT ART AND MIGRATION

Abstract [en]

The essays opens with a discussion about the terms: Storia and Storie and their English equivalent History’ and ‘Story/Stories’.

 

As a migrant artist I explore, transform and translate Andean – and other ancient – myths, legends and rituals into contemporary pieces of art, for which Storia and Storie are fundamental.

Aiming to critically engage with and contextualize my own practice, several historical examples of artists who have used pictorial narrations are presented. On the process of contextualizing my own practise, the essay engages in understanding the multi-layered components of some historic paintings such the Miracle of the cross by Bellini, or The slave ship by Turner to offer more complete and complex reading of its existence.

 

The final part start defining the concept of the word protrusion. Taking from the language of science of conservation, the word on the essay is applied to the discussion of migration and art. On the presumption that art is a reflection of cultural heritage and traditions, art pieces can symbolically recapture past people’s forms of thoughts and re-embody their emotions individual and collective memory.
