Description

Oweena Camille Fogarty comments: “My doctorate was connected to magical-religious processes in Afro-Cuban Crossed-Spiritisim from an aesthetic point of view, working from a theoretical standpoint on collective memory and its transmission in the construction of altars.

All the work you have is based on magic realism, taken from religious references in Mexico from 1980- 1996. In 1992, after working for almost 10 years with artistic groups in Mexico, I decided I needed to understand more about primary cultures and both Mexico and Cuba preserve cultures of great "traditions", I disappeared from the artistic scene from 1996-2002.”
