Tejiendo Calle / Weaving Streets

by Noblanco

Weaving Streets was an expression used by grandmothers to refer to the people who permanently walked the streets of Cartagena. This play-on-words as a title because it aptly describes the routine of a group of women who devoted their lives to selling food door-to-door in this city of the Colombian Caribbean. rnThis book by the artist Ruby Rumié, brings together 50 of these women, who were made a tribute/ceremony as part of an artistic practice, shows their everyday objects, their routes and shows us a little of the life of these women, anonymous beings that inhabit everyday life and that are usually relegated but this project elevates them and shows them in all their dimensions.
