Iván Argote
Iván Argote conceptually links two cities to
which he is personally tied: Bogotá, where he
was born and raised, and Paris, where he trained
as an artist and now lives. The artist films the
inscriptions that have been posted around
his neighborhood by Collages Feminicides, an
anonymous collective of women artists; using
short phrases and simple but immediately
recognizable graphics, they highlight the
pervasiveness of gender violence and femicide
in France. Over the collages, we hear the voice
of Diana Rodriguez Franco, “Secretaria de la
Mujer de Bogotá”: head of the city’s department
of women’s affairs, charged with implementing
public policies for preventing domestic violence
and supporting victims. Although the text,
images, and sound are in different languages,
they form a shared grammar that emphasizes
the gravity of the situation and the need to act
immediately. (Leonardo Bigazzi)
