A PICTORIAL ESSAY ABOUT ART AND MIGRATION
University of Arts, Crafts and Design, Institutionen för Konst (K).
2018 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

The essay opens with a discussion of the terms Storia and Storie and their English equivalents History and Story/Stories

As a migrant artist I explore, transform and translate Andean – and other ancient – myths, legends and rituals into contemporary pieces of art, for which Storia and Storie are fundamental.

Aiming to critically engage with and to contextualize my own practice, I introduce several historical examples of artists who have used pictorial narrations. This essay is part of my personal contextualisation process and seeks to capture the multi-layered components of some historic paintings such as Bellini's Miracle of the Cross  (1500) and Turner's Slave Ship (1840).

Finally, the essay reflects on the concept of 'protrusion'. Originating from the language of conservation science, the idea of protrusion is here applied to the discussion of migration and art. On the presumption that art is a reflection of cultural heritage and traditions, pieces of art can symbolically recapture past people’s forms of thought and re-embody their emotions as individual and collective memories.
