Bogota is a city with a perpetual steady climate. Fast variations from sunny to rainy in few seconds all year long.
This trip was made because I was invited by Maria Ines Rodriguez
to participate with my gallery Gloria Maria,
(l-r Maria Ines Rodriguez, Milena Bonillas, Natalia Valencia)
in the independent projects of the ArtBo fair

The curatorial idea was "City as a laboratory" and I showed few works
from my monuments both imaginary and readymade.
I loved the work of the late Monica Restrepo introduced to me by Lorenzo Giangrandi.
I visited the amazing Gold Museum
Once you go out from Bogota you start going down the mountains
the temperature is rising
a perfect retreat on a hill slope inside the jungle.
Camilo and Natalia (Valencia) made me a great tour around to check colombian flora
from a typical Mango tree
to the very lush coffee one
(coca tea boxes can be bought from everywhere).
Warm and humid
variety of unexpected noises and beautiful smells.
