El Boga Residency
The residency project emerges from the encounter between Siu and Jose Alejandro around painting. It seeks to inhabit the workshop space, with watercolour practices and experimentation with the pictorial support on a vertical weaving loom. It seeks to share the practice of painting in Mompox and relate it to traditional crafts of the territory.
