FEMALE MIGRATIONS / MIGRACIONES FEMENINAS
Artists: Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Amanda Gutiérrez, Esperanza Mayobre, and Simone Couto
Curators: Se habla español (SHE) Noelia Lecue, Maria Alejandra Saenz, Andrea Valencia, Natalia Viera
Female Migrations is a program curated by Se habla español (SHE) that invites four Latin American artists that address the female perspective of migration. The program, a series of four events that will take place at La Nacional, will present site-specific works by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky, Simone Couto, Amanda Gutiérrez, and Esperanza Mayobre.
How does the female gaze experiences migration? How is the journey of men different from the forgotten and visceral experience of migrating as a woman? Female Migrations calls attention to the historic dismissed role and view of women in this current and dire issue, through the personal experiences and artistic practices of the invited artists.
July 31st - Amanda Gutiérrez, Flâneuse>La caminanta. VR performance
Flâneuse> La caminanta...is a performative documentary of soundwalks with female-identified participants in the public space. The title of the work emphasizes a missing word in Spanish that describes women as wanderers. Gutiérrez’s work calls out how female-identified bodies can safely perceive their autonomy as walkers. The VR performance in collaboration with the artists Viv Corringham and Julia Santoli, includes sonic explorations and choreographic gestures to make a stand to the lack of inclusiveness of these bodies in public space.
Amanda Gutiérrez (Mexico) explores the experience of home, belonging, and cultural identity by bringing into focus details of everyday practices. She graduated in performance and new media by The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she is currently a Ph.D. student in the University of Girona, in the Doctoral Programme in Humanities, Heritage, and Cultural Studies. She has exhibited internationally in museums, and contemporary art galleries, such as The Windor Gallery; Khiasma Gallery; Move Forward Festival; Liverpool Art Biennial; Ex Teresa Arte Actual; and Action Art Actuelle. She is a recipient of the National System of Art Creators from Mexico, The Fellowship Competition 2007 and CAAP 2008, and it was a nominee for Artadia Art Chicago 2009.
