Catatumbo Territory

Noemí Perez- Caño Indio, 2020- Charcoal and embroidery on canvas

“Catatumbo” territory. The work of Nohemí Pérez, multidisciplinary, revolves around the relationship between men and nature; the conflicts, tensions, and genesis that arise from this constant friction. Based on the notions of architecture, cinema, and sociology, the artist proposes a rereading of the Catatumbo territory; a geographical region with a very particular natural and sociocultural ecosystem in Colombia. Illegal armed groups of right, left, native tribes, evangelical missionaries, and large multinationals of mining and drug trafficking coexist in this jungle region.
