Devolver la mirada

Consulate General of Colombia

Featuring work by: Nora Diaz, Jesus Ortiz

"Devolver la mirada"/ Return The Look.

The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a living entity and each stone, each mountain and each being that inhabits it has a life cycle and a story to tell.

The Cosmos Archive keeps inside knowledge, conversations and secrets of the four communities that inhabit the territory of the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, Los Koguis, Los Wiwas, Los Iku and Kankuamos.

This exhibition brings us closer to the process of recovering photographs from the Cosmos Archive, it is an action that makes us look back at the past and follow the path that Jesús Ortiz and Nora Díaz have gone through for 25 years and how they have built close relationships with different Mamos and families from the four communities of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

Though a curatorial process, MAMUT - Memoria Audiovisual, have made an effort to select from more than 2,000 photographs that have been digitized and restored in recent years, finding moments and gestures where there is an intimate relationship with the gazes. Gazes that cross, deny or hide. This exhibition invites us to leave the margins, in search of that other, who found himself. It invites us to return the look!
