Marilyn Boror presents Franja
Dialogues we make inside of the Franja, led by Marilyn Boror with the idea of working from Central American countries, talking about our colonization stories, genocide, the extermination of original peoples. This process will bring us closer to the land, the ancestry, memory, resistance, miscegenation, with a critical view of our territories. This project is part of his research process with the support of the FFAI organization.

Darwin René Andino | FRANJA 01
Darwin is a Honduran artist. I have known him for more than ten years and now we share experiences in Franja. We have worked on various proposals, exhibitions, residencies, and research in Central America and the United States.
Currently, I have approached his latest proposals, where we coincide in interests such as the discourse from our Central American countries, with the colonization history, the genocides, the exterminations of the original peoples. Personally, I am interested in knowing the work that various artists do in Central America, using the material as a speech. In the case of Darwin, the use of clay, adobe, and other approaches to the material with which art is typically produced.
I am sure that this will bring us closer to the land, ancestry, memory, resistance, miscegenation, with a critical view of our territories.
