Residency process
  • Drawing and comics workshop at the Spirit Laboratory, El Retiro, Antioquia

"" In the Laboratory of the Spirit, a communal and rural place, the topics or ideas that I discuss with the participants are very different. They are receptive, always interested in knowing new things. In the two sessions that I have oriented, the subject of violence has not been almost present, but one in particular has been fear.

In most of the stories made by the participants there was always a burden on the covered, the unexplored.

Telling stories with pictures is a path not yet explored by the participants, a path with a lot of brush to cut. For them as well as for me, it is an opportunity for self-knowledge and the power of abstraction. "
