International photography, painting, installation, video-art and performance art festival, hosted in Bogotá (Colombia), at Jorge Jurado Gallery.
ALCHEMIC BODY | FIRE . AIR . WATER . EARTH is an exhibition of contemporary art, within the blooming Bogotá arts scene, destination of curators and collectors from all over the world. The exhibition is focused on the concept of transformation, starting from the alchemical processes, that aim to purify the nature elements: earth, air, water and fire. The alchemists, recognized as the ancestors of modern chemists, worked to discover the way the world is made and to modify its structure. The mysterious practice of alchemy always influenced the art and the artists from all the centuries. Alchemists and artists are fascinated by the concept of transformation and they both work to discover and create new possible worlds. We invite artists to share their researches about the natural elements and the creative processes of mixing and changing, using the body as field of artistic transformation.
