ARTBO is an opportunity for Lily Castaño and her alters to visit her homeland at last. The trip is primarily a working trip as Lily will stay for approximately 15 days and will visit, meet and network with other artists, galleries and works with art. But it is also a trip to walk in Mama’s footsteps and experience for herself the smells, sounds, tastes and views- an all inclusive sensory overload!
However it is a trip that causes concern for Lily and especially BAby Bunny, as it is the site of the abuse, trauma and loss that she experienced as a pre verbal baby.
Lily feels that as a graduate of 2020 this is an important event to promote herself and her alters works, website, and seek opportunities for a future residency.
Lily has been researching into grants to assist her in researching and documenting the trip whilst in situ
Lily has already started packing..
In time, there will be a photo essay of selected photographs taken during the documentation and research of the trip. Lily envisages that these will be categorised into sections..watch this space!
Lily envisages that she will take in her suitcase, elements of materials that have been used previously, to instigate new works on site in Bogotá and will take full documentation
Here will be a selection of the new works...
