CURADURÍA URBANA -

.
“During my residency  at “Lugar a dudas” of Cali / Colombia  in June-july of 2015, I got my arm cut with an infected street railing of a dirty bridge. Because of that my arm got very infected, so I went to a pharmacy where an old mother healed the wound with alcohol and white bandage. When I was recovered, I used the same alcohol and bandage to cover the infected railing, so no one could be hurt again. It was stolen a few weeks later. And A few weeks later, I did a workshop called “Curaduría Urbana” at El Instituto Departamental de Bellas Artes de Cáli, asking each student to heal an specific part of the city”
