With Juliana Durán


Description

Storytelling is a strong component of every culture, with art and body adornment central to sharing our human experience.

Led by Sur-Collective visual artist Juliana Durán, during this one-day workshop we’ll examine icons that hold personal significance, using drawing as a key part of our process to produce a unique wearable pendant that holds personal meaning to us.

Guided by the historical and cultural context of indigenous pectoral art from South America, we’ll investigate the rich diversity of artistic expression, creating a platform for discussions about cultural appropriation to support our journey through symbolism, abstract mark-making, and pictographs.

Your Teacher

Juliana Durán is a Colombian practising visual artist who came to Aotearoa, New Zealand after receiving a scholarship to complete a Master in Fine Arts at ELAM, Auckland University. Her most recent achievement was receiving the Small Sculpture Prize in 2022 by Perpetual Guardian in association with Te Motu Vineyard and the Waiheke Community Art Gallery.
Durán’s work aims to explore the capabilities and particularities of found materials as a response to “De-growth” and upcycling, a central value within her practice, the relationship between place and space, social constructions around the sense of belonging, and the conception of home.
