Camilo Barreneche, an artist from Pereira (Colombia), investigates the connections between art and ornithology.
El Boga Residency
With his project "Birdwatching as an artistic practice" Camilo seeks to create a poetic cartography that records the tracks, traces and signs of the birds that inhabit the banks of the Magdalena River and the urban area of Mompox. During his residency, he will explore the conceptual, plastic, visual and sound relationships between the birds, the river and the community that resides in the Mompox territory. Camilo's residency is possible thanks to the 2023 national circulation grant for artists and other agents of the arts awarded by the Ministry of Culture of Colombia.
