Cristina García Rodero

RITUALES EN HAITI

For 20 years Cristina García Rodero was engaged in an anthropological and artistic study of the folk traditions of Spain. It is the most famous project of this photojournalist, recorded in ESPAÑA OCULTA (Hidden Spain, 1989) and other sources. In recent years however she has left the land of her birth and travelled around the world in search of other cultures with their own traditions. Over the last four years García Rodero visited Haiti a number of times. There she investigated the collective rituals of the voodoo cult. In this way she tried to penetrate into the religious experience of the people. The result was a series of expressive portraits and moving scenes, flanked by some engaging documentary observations. RITUALES EN HAITI (2001) was shown for the first time last year at the Venice Biennale. Noorderlicht shows a selection from the series.
