“Sangre Invisible is a very engaging narrative of the search for a story, an essay that asks after its own possibility, and a piece of personal writing that brings to account the politics of who can write and be written about.”

Dr Martin Hargreaves, Jan 2019.



This research questions the existence of a genealogy of female Latin American performance art practices, tracking their visibility in global historical accounts since the 1970s up to the present. It then explores the potential and possibilities of blood as material, comparing its motivation to that of other generations of artists abroad.

Drawing from my own performance practice and enquiring, I question how can I position myself as part of that lineage. I analyse and take as examples some of the blood-based performances from three artists that have lived in very different geographical and political contexts across the continent: Ana Mendieta (Cuba, 1948 - New York, 1985), María Evelia Marmolejo (Colombia, 1958), and Regina José Galindo (Guatemala, 1974).
