Ana González Rojas and Irene Reyes Noguerol in conversation with Marta Nebot
Bridges between memory and oblivion through literature
Universidad de Cartagena - Paraninfo Rafael Núñez
This conversation explored how we think and represent first nations cultures, the connections between South American and Greco-Latin mythology, and the bonds of memory, identity and gender in art and literature between Colombia and Spain. Ana González Rojas (Colombia) is an artist from Bogota, interested in portraying the Colombian reality in all its breadth, rawness and diversity. Together with the photographer Ruvén Afanador, she is responsible for the exhibition Hijas del agua, which pays homage to the indigenous peoples who inhabit Colombia and whose images were exhibited at the National Museum of Colombia. Irene Reyes Noguerol (España), was selected in 2021 by Granta in Spanish as one of the best 25 writers under 35 years of age, wrote her first book when she was 18 years old (Caleidoscopio) and has also written Homero y otros dioses, a short story compilation inspired in the myths and traditions of Ancient Greece. The Spanish storyteller wrote a piece on Hijas del Agua which she will read at this talk. The event was moderated by Marta Nebot.
