Exilium explores the body living in exile. The physical, emotional, political, and cultural labour that such a body needs to go through. The tension that exists between the memory of a/the homeland and a strange new physical and political territory. The status of a body struggling between two spaces and its own need to heal, forget, regenerate, re-learn, and let go.

Montréal-based, Bogotá-born Santiago Tamayo Soler is interested in the intersection of fictional narratives, cinema, and live action. His work attempts to translate and integrate various elements from cinematographic language to the live action, through ritualistic studies and practices.
