Montti Colque has a peculiar style that is both recognizable and alien. She builds up a world of her own by mixing influences from popular culture, such as hip hop and punk, with female icons, saints, devils, and other mythical figures. Identity is central to Valeria Montti Colque’s work. She explores identities with the help of characters that symbolize strength, love, grief, trauma and gender power structures. The Jokerita is a female Joker, an outsider that can be both dangerous and a jester. The Mountain is another character that represents different entities depending on the context. The mountain itself is alive. It provides man with material and protection in the form of caves. The Menstruation mountain is sacred and symbolizes the eternal life cycle. Both the mountain and menstruation are essential to humans, but their powers have been relegated to oblivion or ignorance today. Valeria Montti Colque’s work is about finding oneself as an individual in an increasingly mobile and global time.
