Juanda’s work does not set its ultimate goal in History, what it formalizes is fundamentally an invitation to recognize our present in all its complexity, without losing sight of the continuity of historical processes. The artist combines aesthetic manifestations that account for cultural mixes, and have to do with unequal power relations reproduced since the colonization of the Americas.

La obra de Henao no fija en La Historia su objetivo final, lo que formaliza es fundamentalmente una invitación a reconocer nuestro presente en toda su complejidad, sin perder de vista la continuidad de los procesos históricos. El artista combina manifestaciones estéticas que dan cuenta de las mezclas culturales, y tienen que ver con relaciones desiguales de poder reproducidas desde la colonización de las Américas.
