I also take care of the chicken is a large-format piece made on a backstrap loom with a brocaded figure. It is part of the 8 pieces that resulted from the creative exercise, in which women and men from the “San Andrés” artisan group in Chiapas worked collaboratively, based on the representation of their daily life, customs and concerns through different drawings. . With the intention of promoting participatory design in craft production, each member created a loom, representing one of their drawings and applying their experience in the technique as a means of expression and creative production. The objective was to give authorship to each participant of the pieces they made.

ABOUT THE PARTNER ORGANIZATION

Fundación León XIII

Fundación León XII IAP (FLXIII) is a Private Assistance Institution established in 1996 as a response to the conditions of marginalization and exclusion of communities in Chiapas, Oaxaca and Guerrero.
