Karün: The 2nd Anniversary of Collage Chile

Online Exhibition in collaboration with Mujeres que cortan y pegan
through 3 February 2021

The current context of the pandemic has required us to change our behaviors and our way of working, including bonding. In the numerous attempts at changes, plans and transitions to be able to have a normal life, everything gets complicated.

But what is a normal life?

Without music there is no paradise by Bárbara Escobar

Women, in our cycles and periods, align ourselves with nature to live in harmony. The moon, the water, the sun, the earth, the flowers, the roots live in our daily lives. Learning to listen to our bodies, to allow ourselves to flourish or to remain calm while respecting the cycles can be fundamental to face the future. Understanding that we are human living within an ecosystem that asks us for collaboration and self-care is key.

Through this exhibition, 23 Chilean collagists ask us to reflect on the way we cohabitate with nature during a global pandemic.
