Back in 2017, during an art performance at the residence of the Colombian ambassador in Bangkok, this dress was hand-painted. Models danced to the symphonic version of La Pollera Colorá, assistants had a yellow butterfly tied to their wrists and each stroke celebrated peace; a brand-new future for Colombia.
Today peace feels distant, violence is back, and it seems we are beginning once again. Same dress, different context, eternal conflict.
This dress is a piece of my country, is a moment that travels inside a bag, is a fragment of memory that gathers colorful nostalgia.
