#76: Marilyn Boror Bor

Through this section, monthly, we invite agents of the artistic system to share a selection of images related to their practice or current interests. Images are published daily in the header of our website and shared through our Instagram profile. At the end of the month, the complete selection of images is published together with a text that contextualizes them. Here is the selection of November 2021.

Marilyn Boror, Maya-Kaqchikel artist, questions her context, speaks in opposition to the patriarchal, racist and colonial views rooted in the history of invaded countries.

Her work stands out for the constant search, deconstruction and study of words, disarticulating the behaviors of power, from the languages of memory.

Her artistic projects of resistance, analysis and preservation of the thought and languages of indigenous or native peoples, focuses on the power of words as triggers of cultural meanings and identity questions; her work seeks to rescue the present through the historical understanding of the invisible and fragmented ancient past, using words and her own body as a political space for denunciation.
