Marisa Cornejo, Dream with Ramon Grosfoguel, oil on metal 25 x 40 cm, 2020

This is a selection of a series of contemporary ex-votos (an ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or to a divinity) that I painted during the confinement.
These paintings are dreams I had with philosophers that had inspired and supported my artistic practice and research of the last few years.
These ex-votos about my dreams guide my life and give me courage to continue my singular path.
