TALK with Cecilia Vicuña

A talk between Cecilia Vicuña and Camila Marambio for the launch of the publication Slow Down Fast: A Toda Raja.

Slow Down Fast: A Toda Raja (2019, Errant Bodies Press) is the latest collaboration between Cecilia Vicuña and Camila Marambio. In this intergenerational dialogue, Cecilia Vicuña and curator Camila Marambio converse about mestizaje/miscenegation, ecological disaster, eroticism and decolonization in their multilingual, irreverent and humorous slang.

The result is a unique book that presents a conversation that is both poetic and critical. The particular dialogue presented in the book crosses over from Spanish to English, from poetry to academic argumentation, and from art to science. It proposes a necessary method for de-colonial liberation, which reveals the transformative power of art in search of “an ecology of the soul, the resplendence of our connectivity to each other and the cosmos.”

The book, which they began working on in 2015 through recorded meetings that were then transcribed, will be presented by its authors in the context of Cecilia Vicuña, a retrospective exhibition.
