The Jaguarity exhibition by the Colombian artist Jeisson Castillo, curated by Diana Valbuena, and supported by ilali Collective Art Studio will be open from 10th to 12th of June. We will bring together art works that deal the shamanic relationship between the spiritual owners of the jungle and the Andean-Amazonian native communities of southern Colombia. This exhibition is part of a tour of several European cities: Toulouse, Palma de Mallorca, Berlin, and Paris.
On Friday the 10th at 7 pm we will open the exhibition at ilali with video projections and a jam session open to the public (if you have percussion or acoustic musical instruments, bring them).
On Saturday the 11th we will hold a talk on the topics of research addressed by the artist. Themes such as Power Plants and their relationship with art, the Jaguarity as an environmental and heritage protection movement, and community art and pedagogy through the processes of Ofrenda Editorial. This talk will be held in English and Spanish.
On Sunday the 12th we will carry out a meeting of harmonization and spiritual ordinance. An offering to the Berlin territory through a guided and shared meditation, sent by the grandparents from Colombia to be shared in these spaces.
