OUT OF PUPA
Laura Giraldo Diaz
Ausstellung: September 8 - 11, 2021
Vernissage: September 9  19:00 - 22:00 Uhr

Laura Diaz is a Colombian, Berlin-based audiovisual art creator who will share her master thesis project, "Out of Pupa". It is a mixed-media installation reflecting her bereavement and recovery process after her mother's suicide.

 

It took almost nine years for artist Laura Giraldo Diaz to work though her feelings about this traumatic event in her life. Through the grieving process, she learned about her own resilience. Like a butterfly, she was able to transform herself, and use her experience to help others.

"Pupa" is the life stage some insects undergo to transform between immature and mature stages.

This exhibition is a colorful multi-layered experience in which the artist shares her journey, told through various art forms.

The installation core is herself, a "Survivor" (relatives or very close people of the suicidal that face a grieving process) willing to share with others related to the topic and most notably to those who are not.
