El arte de Martha Cajías

Michela Pentimalli

Abstract


The aim of this article is to provide an interpretation of key issues in Martha Cajías’ work, such as the multifaceted dialectics of fertility and maternity, life and death, memory and dreams, ethics of the ancestors, collective myths and family myth, and among this all, the overwhelming presence of Andean epistemology.

El propósito de este trabajo es ofrecer una interpretación de aspectos cruciales en la obra de Martha Cajías, como por ejemplo la compleja dialéctica fertilidad-maternidad, vida-muerte, memoria y sueños, la ética de los ancestros, los mitos colectivos, el mito familiar, y en medio de todo, la enorme presencia de epistemología andina.
