About La Decanatura (Calderón & Piñeros)

La Decanatura is a collective made up of Bogotá artists Elkin Calderón Guevara and Diego Piñeros García. Their artistic projects generate new approaches to art from hybrid perspectives and disciplines, questioning hegemonic forms of knowledge and power. La Decanatura has been interested in displacement as a metaphor to be able to meet other realities, as well as to create links between memory and the ruins of the past. Through the audiovisual medium they establish poetics of time and space, playing with "Mise-en-scène", that document events, places and objects. At the same time this narratives produce dislocations and alterations that lead to new readings of reality. Currently they are nominated to the X Luis Caballero Award 2019. La Decanatura has been awarded various grants for the development of art projects such as the COINCIDENCIA Pro Helvetia Residency Programme in Villa Ruffieux, Switzerland, 2018/ 2019; the National Scholarship for science, art, and technology labs in Plataforma, Bogotá, 2017. The collective participated in important exhibitions and video festivals such as: HERE/NOW. Current Visions from Colombia. Amsterdam (2019). MACRO-ASILO (Video del giorno) Roma (2019). Rencontres Internationales Paris / Berlin (2018), VideoBrasil (2017) , Experiments in Cinema, New Mexico (2016). National Artists Salon. Colombia. (2016). The collective presented solo exhibitions: “Centro Espacial Satelital”. Museo Carrillo Gil. Gabinete de Video. Ciudad de México (2018) and "Caja Negra" (2017) at MAMM (Museum of Modern Art of Medellin). Their work is part of different private and public collections as KADIST, Banco de la República in Colombia and MAMM (Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín) among others.
