Body Cartographies

Cartografías corporales

To think about the body as a territory implies recognizing its ever-changing essence as well as its dynamic materiality that is transformed with each new lived experience, with each bond, with each emotion and sensation; a body that is at the same time filled with images, with predictable itineraries, with imprinted memories of the day to day, of our labour and the familiar landscape that is marked on the skin, on the postures, on the gestures, on our hands.

Below, you can find different examples of our embodied cartographies made in different places across Colombia. Using the mediums of paper, audiovisual tools and gestures, we mapped our bodily experiences, the landscapes wherein they take place and the bonds that connect us, revealing versions of our corporealities that are in constant interplay with the others.
