Residency at El Boga
During her residency at El Boga, Elizabeth will develop the project "Tunja - Mompox: An Exchange of Hidden Treasures" which seeks to compile old photographs of the cities of Mompox and Tunja and intervene them artistically using transfer, engraving, painting and embroidery techniques. Her aim is to create a travelling exhibition that highlights the history and visual heritage of both cities. This exhibition will be presented in
Mompox and in Tunja, allowing a visual dialogue between the two colonial cities and highlighting the participation of the communities in the whole process.
