ON PLINY’S PATHS Artists’ Exchange Cologne — Tunis 2023

Jazmin Rojas Forero staged an installation consisting of a backlit photograph depicting a plant in the Colombian mountains that collects water via condensation. The plant’s inside inspired the shape of the glass sculpture that was mounted in the center of the exhibition hall. Every night it was filled with frozen water transforming the atmospheric humidity into drips of water collected in a ceramic vessel shaped after the stem of the plant.

Cologne-based Jazmin Rojas Forero participated with two installations at the WATER MATTERS exhibition ptoject. In Dar Ben Achour, she staged a combination of a backlit photograph and a sculpture both related to water sites in Colombia. Her raw materials were onsite recordings with camera and hydrophone. For the sounds, a ceramic sculpture shaped after the inner ear became the echo chamber. In Palais Khreireddine, she showed a combination of a backlit photography and a glass sculpture formed after the inner structure of a Colombian plant that collects water via condensation.
