RODRIGUEZ, Maité Soledad. Emerging camouflage from the ancient past. The feather in the work or María Fernanda Cardoso. Índex [online]. 2023, n.16, pp.121-132. ISSN 2477-9199.

This essay approaches the work Emu Wear [Ropa de Emú] (2008-2020) by the Colombian artist María Fernanda Cardoso which worked from Aby Warburg’s survival concept. The work is questioned by its relation to pre-Columbian feather art, so that we can understand the formal procedures and resources −in terms of color, shape, materiality, texture and technique− by means of which they re-signify elements of the ancestral past. In this sense it adheres to an anachronistic conception that understands the present in a dialectical way, which allows symptoms and breaks in the linearity of historical time to appear, and with it, the resurgence of forms and images of our ancestral Latin American culture in contemporary times.

Palavras-chave : Latin America; contemporary art; feather art; camouflage; María Fernanda Cardoso.
