On this month’s installment of Spirituality and Politics, Marelena Ferrer and I are joined by Isabel Cotarelo, an artist who’s life experiences express through her work. “The need to modify the contiguous space and the objects in it has always emanated as an irresistible force. The experiences that I have had throughout my life have changed the output of that force. As a Latina growing up in a matriarchal family, the useful craft making process and cooking that bonded members and generated stories and guidance are now part of my story and a repository from where I can launch a new re-invention of self.”
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and living and working in Kingston, NY, Isabel studied Fine Art and Counseling, has received numerous grants and awards and exhibited internationally since 1983.
She co-curated the exhibit at the Arts Society of Kingston featuring women from around the globe to Celebrate “HERstory.”
Our conversation weaves through the experiences of being a woman, being raised in a matriarchal family, the importance of spaces for women and Isabel’s own HERstory.
Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.
Our show music is from Shana Falana !!!
