Katia Tirado is an artist, actress and body piercing activist. Her artistic practice destabilizes gender constructions and the borders between public and private spheres, using ritualized profantiy and abjection.
Razor Weaving is a complex system of gestures, video montages, and poetic actions in a continuous process. This piece weaves together and intertwines the living memory and struggle of the women in the Zapatista movement–the voices and testimonies of insurgent women. From there, it uncovers the plot that braids together the reasons and contentions behind the great uprising: the women who are at the root and sustenance of the resistance, the unique strength of the rebellion. Tejido a navaja reconstructs and records the magnitude of the struggles faced by insurgent native women.
