"Este libro fue seleccionado en la Convocatoria 2017 para la publicación de Fotolibro Latinoamericano"--Box. This project, which began in 2011 while Alicia Caldera (b. Maracaibo, Zulia, Venezuela) was living in Bogotá, has been exhibited in different museums and galleries in Colombia, Venezuela, Spain, the United States and Mexico; was a finalist in 2016 in the III Concurso Iberoamericano de Fotografía NexoFoto; in 2017 won the competition for publications of the CDF Ediciones in the Centro de Fotografía of Montevideo in Uruguay; and it was published as a book at the end of 2018. The book "2219" (2219 km is the length of the border between Venezuela and Colombia) is the outcome of 7 years of work and is composed of three booklets or tomes, one yellow, one navy blue and one red. Each volume uses a different formal resource to convey to the reader a changing, active and complex experience. The first, in the form of a 5-meter folding accordion, represents the migrants' journey, a symbolic and scenic journey between Venezuela and Colombia; the second book explores the new inhabited spaces in Bogotá, offers hidden spaces in the memory and the opening to a new hybrid identity; and the third volume, literally cut in half, ends with the fragmented identities, torn and broken faces that offer readers the possibility of reconfiguring or recomposing the images. 2219 is a response to the exodus that seems not to stop and that has led to an atomization of the Venezuelan towards a diversity of countries. Caldera then proposes an experience, a physical and emotional journey between these two countries, Venezuela and Colombia. LIMITED EDITION OF 250.
