The piece Acururar takes its name from an indigenous word used in the department of Nariño, Colombia, a word that translates as the action of winding something into a ball. The processes of weaving and knitting are implicit in the piece, actions undertaken to join the hair of women who chose to cut it off as a sign of transformation, weariness, or sadness, thus forming a single continuous thread. In this way, they intertwined not only materials, but also feelings and tendernesses that materialized this time of grief.
The word denotes curling oneself into a ball when the body closes in on itself, contracted by a factor such as fear or pain.
