1000 Kisses

On view now at The MAMBO (museum of modern art in Bogotá) – works by Colombian artist Ruven Afanador. The exhibition has been awaited for more than twenty years and features his greatest works. The exhibition, entitled “I’ll be your mirror, Ruven Afanador: 80 Portraits”, features pictures from the artist’s books: Torero (2001), Shadow (2004) and Thousand kisses (2009). In his last book, Thousand Kisses, the photographer drew his attention to various flamenco dancers. The artist is fascinated by staging the body, so he did not choose any old dance at random. Ruven Afanador was born in Columbia in the sixteenth century city fo Bucaramanga, La Ciudad de los Parques high in the scenic plateau above Rio de Oro. Afanador's photography is a celebration of the poetry of bodies motion. Exhibition is on view until October 9.
