Miriam Londoño’s Testimonies feature the stories of woman displaced by violence #ArtTuesday

Incredibly beautiful and powerful project by Miriam Londoño. From My Modern Met via Visual Poetry:

Columbian artist Miriam Londoño’s work revolves around the use of paper as an accessible medium to communicate transformations. Her delicate pieces convert paper into the “ink” with which she draws and writes, building poetry and stories into the air. Londoño’s body of work creates visual poetry, using her writing as a reflection on the ability of language to shape our memories and identities.

Currently residing in Holland, the artist understands the shift that occurs as a foreigner adopting a new culture and losing the capacity to fully communicate. Her subject matter explores the concepts of “migration, communication and social exclusion” and she is particularly interested in how traumatic events can splinter one’s identity, tapping into this sense of otherness as inspiration for her striking pieces. She embeds this emotional quality into each work she creates, weaving stories, poems, and personal testimonies into the art.
