The project Old News of the Present is composed by light boxes that hold vintage-looking stained glass fragments, drawings, and sculptures that create a dialogue between images of the ancient and present day. These works emerge from the artist´s experience in the Bronx area of Bogota; this area is full of contrasts: within a block it hosts a national monument called The Voto Nacional Church, a military battalion’s barracks, a public school, and at the same time it is the center of drug trafficking and consumption in the city. The pieces that composed this project depart from historical and current images related to the location and they synthesize anthropological, aesthetic and symbolical aspects.
