Maria Berrio @ Victoria Miro Gallery

6 October 2020 - 27 November 2020

Flowered Songs and Broken Currents is an exhibition of new work by María Berrío that shows her large-scale works, which are meticulously crafted from layers of Japanese paper.  They often reflect on cross-cultural connections and global migration seen through the prism of her own history. The central theme of this exhibition is the quiet of catastrophe’s aftermath, a solemnity that points as much towards modes of resilience and adaptation as it does to the crushing devastation of loss.

This theme takes shape through Berrío’s narration of a small Colombian fishing village that has undergone a tragedy. In these works, Berrío explores how the formation of historical memory occurs amidst processes of grieving in a village that maps the site of her own imagination.
