Finissage HERE/NOW: Poisoned and Punctum

Join us for the finissage of exhibition HERE/NOW: Current Visions from Colombia at Framer Framed, on Sunday 30 June 2019! Featuring a performance by participating artist Milena Bonilla, and a talk by Ana María Gómez López.

In their performances, Bonilla and Gómez López will go into the relationship between the body and the natural environment, through a loose narrative following the extraction of Opium Poppy from the Colombian fields and all the way into the veins of addicted bodies, all within a framework of history, conflict, and self-experimentation.

Milena Bonilla – Performance Poisoned: Behind that Grid There is a Maze
For her performance, artist Milena Bonilla addresses the exploitation, criminalisation, synthetisation and isolation of Opium. She takes an Opium Poppy field as a starting point, which consecutively transforms into a territorial wall, a horizon, an overhead view and the sexual parts of a staged character. In a broader sense, Bonilla addresses the reproduction of war and the colonial imposition of cash crops in different zones from the Global South —including but not limited to Colombia.

Ana María Gómez López – Lecture ‘Punctum’
Punctum is an ongoing project featuring the creation of an ‘extracorporeal circuit’, or: the artificial movement of blood from an artery to a vein. Drawing from references in medical records, literary texts, and Colombian history, Punctum offers a point of connection within and amid limbs, or between the corporeal and its standard notation. This lecture centers on self-experimentation and the multifaceted nature of puncta—a needle prick, an anatomical opening, a typographic deletion, a performative perforation.
