Frank Kalero




.co, Colombia, una versión personal (.co, Colombia, a personal version). 2007
Action, book

For months, Frank Kalero has traced photographic and literary narratives of very different sources with strong Colombian connections, contacting more than two hundred and fifty people. The forty personal fragments that are part of the work led by Kalero guide the artist in his particular discovery journey of a country unknown to him. The book ".co, Colombia una versión personal" is the result of his traveling in search of a plural and more objective vision through a bubbling of images and words, all permeated by the common fabric of that yellow band of the Colombia dreamt by William Ospina, critically pushing to transform a difficult and complex reality.
