Daniela Ortiz | They Will Burn with the Flame of the Mother’s Torment and in Ashes Transform

20 October 2021 - 19 February 2022

Wednesday - Saturday 11am-4pm

The artist Daniela Ortiz’s exhibition They Will Burn with the Flame of the Mother’s Torment and in Ashes Transform features works concerned with racist and patriarchal attitudes and practices, both historical and contemporary. The core of the presentation is a new series of banners commissioned by SIRIUS and made in collaboration with Peruvian women of Indigenous origin (Peru is the artist’s native country).

Ortiz examines nationalism, class and gender divides, racism, and the construction of identity amid the contemporary legacies of colonialism and patriarchy. She specifically addresses morality codes, citizenship, and border control systems as enacted through the exclusion—and sometimes exploitation—of migrant communities, and racialized people more broadly. She is known for using her own lived experience as subject matter, for instance motherhood, displacement, feminist engagement, and the production of deviant and insurgent subjectivity.
