Artist Martina Miño Pérez and poet Roxana Crisólogo Correa welcome visitors to interact with an installation, to reflect upon lines, landscapes, cartography and the imagined territories of Latin America through the action of drawing, erasing and appropriating.

Through the use of visual poetry and collage, we can all connect with the collective memory of a continent and with an identity that is still being shaped.

Poetry and texts of Roxana Crisólogo, Martina Miño, Rosamaría Bolom and Lalo Barrubia. Translations into English and Finnish by Anne Ketola.

Peruvian poet Roxana Crisólogo Correa (b. 1966) lives and works in Helsinki, Finland. She is the author of poetry and founder of the Multilingual Literature project Sivuvalo. Crisólogo’s poetry presents power relations in everyday life in the post capitalist era. She rewrites general stories by including traditionally silenced voices to decolonize poetry in order to construct new epic with new heroes.

La patria habia antes de que vos nacieras

Ecuadorian Martina Miño Pérez (b. 1990) is a multidisciplinary artist, living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She is member of the collective Third Space. Martina’s works appear as dreamlike compositions, texts and images, in which meanings shift and the realm of reality is absorbed by fiction. Her work has been exhibited and published in Finland and in Latin America.

Suomeksi:

Runoilija Roxana Crisólogo Correa ja taiteilija Martina Miño Pérez kutsuvat festivaaliyleisön osallistumaan installaatioon, jossa vierailijat pääsevät pohtimaan Latinalaisen Amerikan rajoja ja kuviteltuja alueita itse piirtämällä ja pois pyyhkimällä. Visuaaliset runot ja kollaasit kietovat teoksen osaksi kollektiivista muistia ja maanosan yhä muotoutuvaa identiteettiä.

La Colectiva

LA COLECTIVA  somos cuatro poetas y artistas latinoamericanas establecidas en Finlandia.  Partimos de la poesía para experimentar con otras formas de lenguaje y comunicar contenidos invisibilizados, silenciados o erróneamente representados por los discursos hegemónicos que definen la marginalidad y las periferias.

Nuestra experiencia como trabajadoras del arte y la cultura y migrantes viviendo en Finlandia nos ha llevado a  cuestionar y repensar conceptos como: Origen y destino, hogar y  la transnacionalidad de la identidad.

Los proyectos que desarrollamos, investigan la complejidad de los movimientos migratorios de las comunidades latinoamericanas en Finlandia. ¿De qué manera se articulan contenidos en nuestra comunidad? ¿ Qué los motiva y cómo las diferentes voces que desarrollan discursos dialogan entre ellas?

LA COLECTIVA  is us. Four women. Latin American poets, visual and sound artists based in Helsinki, Finland. We use poetry to experiment its relationship with other forms of language and communicate contents that have been silenced or under represented by the hegemonic voices that define marginality and the peripheries.  Our experience as artists living abroad has inspired us to talk about themes such as “origin” and “destination”, “ home”, and the different faces identity can have.

Our experience as workers of culture and of the arts and immigrants has migratory movements focused on the Latin American community. Since the 1970’s the Latin American cultural motor in Finland is powerful but, what is exactly happening inside it? What content is being shaped from within? What motivates it and how are different voices in dialogue with each other?
