Today is the opening of the group exhibition La Lengua en Los Ojos at Travesía Cuatro gallery where they have included my work 'Siempre estuvimos aquí' in Madrid Spain.

La Lengua en Los Ojos generates an imagination constructed by the gazes of eight Mexican artists and their stories created in different times and places. These "eyes that look" are "the hand that writes" when Margo Glantz vindicates the figure of Malinche in her essay La Lengua en la mano. Malinche, Malinalli, Malintzin or Doña Marina was a historical and mythologized Nahuatl woman, whose job was that of "tongue" - interpreter - for the Spaniards during the colonization process. A character who creates and leaves her mark through her voice - her language - despite appearing in the chronicles of the time as a body interposed between the official interlocutors - the men - and identified with treason.

The exhibition proposes a journey through the spaces in which the body resonates, alluding to the geographical, socio-political and historical context that engendered it. Here, space, both public and private, is an active agent in the lives of those who look or are looked at, of the trace we leave in it, the silences it keeps, the bodies it limits and defines, and the absence of them.

Thus, Eunice, Julieta, Maya, Nirvana, Mayra, Yvonne, Sofia, and Koral place us on the edge of our own borders. Together they form a landscape of voices that continues to fight for spaces where safety and representation are guaranteed. What each one begins as a gesture of individual exploration of female sexuality, of origins, of the margins, around the lives of missing women, ends up becoming a process of empathy, denunciation, healing, and regeneration that allows them to take ownership of these stories through photography.
