MIGUEL ANGEL LEON MOYANO - Colombiana Colegiatura - Colombia

Totemic Identity - A reflection on migration as a process of adaptation of individuals and their resilience in new cultural contexts. Miguel Angel Leon Moyano wants to express his reality as a "for- eigner", alienating the body, disappearing natural features used by geopolitical systems to differentiate ourselves: race and language. To Create Totemic Identities, oversizing the body and marking it with graphs, representing the elimination of political boundaries and finally the deterritorialization.
