Curated by Paloma Chavez Muente

A Keloid evokes the scarring of a wound. The thickened scar tissue leads to the question of how the wound occurred and provokes lifting the layers to remember what happened.
Thelma Vanahí’s solo exhibition, Keloid, weaves an imaginary born from the persecution and massacre of the Haitian population in the Dominican Republic in 1937. The exhibition brings together a variety of works that include photography, collage, audiovisual installation and textile.
Thelma Vanahí is a Dominican-Spanish visual artist and photographer based in Barcelona.
Since 2010, she has developed extensive multidisciplinary projects with a participatory methodology about Dominican culture and its imaginaries, providing an insight into identity and life in the Caribbean country.
