There is a contemporary art that is not merely decorative. There is an art that, in its own way, identifies the blind corners of society.

The Diary of Languages exhibition wants to draw attention to the growing disappearance of native languages and more specifically, to the precarious existence of pre-Columbian languages and cultures in Latin America, 773 of which are on the verge of extinction. It wants to warn about the extermination of populations that oppose integration into the current economic model and the proliferation of excessive technological optimism.

It is an exhibition that invites us to take otherness seriously.
It encourages to open up to other cultural experiences, to other temporalities.
It puts the focus on the fact that the other is not a blank page, he has his knowledge, his remedies, his own world.

These are a series of drawings and pieces in the form of tongues made during the pandemic, a period in which the artist dedicated herself to studying the rewriting of the colonization of the New World by sociologists and anthropologists from Latin American countries, among them Aníbal Quijano, Bolívar Echeverría, Enrique Dussel or Rita Segato. The drawings mention people like Berta Cáceres, murdered for opposing the construction of a hydroelectric dam, or Cristina Calderón, who died in February of the current year, the last to speak Yagán. Or little-known revolutionary characters who were part of the chilling history of Haiti: Toussaint Louverture and Sanité Belair.

On the other hand, the fabric tongues refer to the organ that acts as a hinge, communicates the exterior with the interior and links our environment with our body. It helps us feed ourselves and makes us part of a culture through speech. Likewise, it is the continuation of the theme of “tongues” made in different materials by the artist during the 1980s, which already then manifested her interest in language.
