Yes, We do care... !!!
The work ¡¡¡ Sí nos importa el bledo...!!!! (Yes, We do care...!!!) of artist Argelia Bravo is built on the framework of video, although the photographic printings add a sensorial aspect to it. Bravo is irreverent; she shoots precise and convincing slogans that, by means of humour, sarcasm, and political pep talk, show some real ways of militancy that she lives with: feminism, ecology, social justice, domination mechanisms, patriarchy sedimentation; she reports on all these subjects in a direct way, but with a formality that sometimes brings poetry to our senses, and sometimes beats them.

Ma-Jokaraisa
Poets are kind of an ethic and aesthetic conscience of peoples. Through them, words coming from the soul and daily life take a shape and stay in the memory forever. Be it Warao, Spanish or any human language, we acknowledge in them a desire for memory, an aesthetic construction, and a sensitive mechanism to share dreams and battles. Ma-Jokaraisa means “My other heart” in Warao language; this is the way this people from the Orinoco Delta uses to refer to “friend”. From this concept, alien to his mother tongue, Flix composes a universal reference of welcoming and affection, of evident semiotic knitting and sensorial suggestion.
