M’s Wonderful Drawer is a project that using the Colombian figure of culebrero (storyteller-witchdoctor) aims to combine the notions of magic, myth, and game from the creation of various artistic objects. Consequently, after the culebrero renamed the artistic objects, they will be endowed with new meanings and acquired magical powers. They will become talismans and enchanting objects which may act as remedies and cures to the quotidian problems offered by the current global market world. This project will be carried out as an activation of public space seeking for the appropriation of plazas, streets, and public parks, in which the ‘enchanted objects’ will be in exchange for the stories of the Jakarta residents. If you are interested in learning more about this project and the products that M’s Wonderful Drawer will be offering, please have a visit. Let the Neo tropical magic be with you.
Born 1985 in Bogotá, Colombia. Lives and works in Bogotá
She is Co-director of the artist initiative La Ramona Proyectos – Espacio101 Non profit organization for the research, creation and exhibition of the emerging artist in Bogotá Colombia.
As an artist, she is interested in combining both the artistic language and the thinkable possibility phylosophy as an approach to comprehend the reality by building alternative spaces. She develops drawing as a semantical place which allows her to establish relationships between delirant, fantastic, and immemorial situations with actual circumstances. Her central idea is to examine the mechanisms that allow us to get an appropriation of the places in which we live, by describing the everyday experiences in both local and global scenarios.
