‘4 Women in Aquelarre’ is an exhibition of prints, sculptures, mixed media works and ceramics by four artists based in London E17: Anna Alcock, Linda Green, Kirsten Schmidt and Yaniré Sylva Delgado.
Its inspiration is the idea of the Witches’ Sabbath – famously and disturbingly imagined by Goya in Los Caprichos, and long associated with rebellion and transgression and the reality of persecution.
I am presenting to you... "BURIAL PROJECTS"
In Burial Project or Proyecto Enterramientos, Yaniré Sylva Delgado has made books, prints and ceramics to express her identity, culture and values as an Ecuadorian woman and artist. She has explored issues of guilt and morality and has looked at burial ceremonies and the ways in which we seek peace through closure.
Yaniré has made five books. The first presents pictures from burials uncovered by archaeological excavations; the second explores the burial of guilt in Roman Catholicism; the third offers redemption; the fourth opens the project to the public by asking the question: how do you want to be buried? The fifth book incorporates images from the famous Guayaquil Cemetery in Ecuador.
“Closure is fundamental in our lives because it allow us to move on. Burial Project has allowed me to grow from the place of pain and frustration so the last piece of work I propose for this exhibition will involve the community, the place where I am now and where I belong. In workshops I will ask the public to create a Venus Valdivia who will represent our growth and hopes in life”.
