‘In The Land of the Sun, Berrío made audible the silence that follows a catastrophe. Her powerful narrative works convey a solemn call for resilience and adaptation. They suggest that in the face of devastating loss, art can foster understanding and healing.’ – Eugenio Viola
Eugenio Viola reviews María Berrío: The Land of the Sun for Artforum, which was on view at Victoria Miro Venice from 17 September–29 October 2022.
