"Colombia is a country full of prejudice, many of them erroneous, but the vast majority exaggerated" says David H. Del Valle, curator of Colombia exhibition, for him, this has created a great diversity of contradictions that affect the perception of the country both externally and in its own inhabitants. 

For the first entry of Colombia in the London Design Biennale, Del Valle seeks to generate reflection on what is known about the country, reflecting on how despite the war and social conflicts, the country has grown, developed and evolved along with its design. For this, the Colombian exhibition will present different emotional states, framed in two specific moments that will allow visitors to experience a little bit of the fear, shame, guilt, pride, happiness and joy that exist in this great territory. The installations seeks to show a country that does not deny its past, but does not allow itself to be defined by it, it will represent a creative and colourful nation where his inhabitants, despite the war and the pain, love their country and are happy to live in it.
