Ericka Florez
(La Nocturna). Year and city of birth: Cali, 1983. Lives and works in: Cali.
Her projects can take the form of performative exhibitions, danceable lectures and publications. Currently she is interested in the relationship between rythms and the cosmogonies that produce them. She had presented her danceable conferences in Manifiesta 11,  in Rupert, in Museo experimental el Eco, El festival de performance de Cali, el 43 Salón nacional de artistas de Colombia. She had curated expositions in Colombia as the 13 Salón Regional de Artistas, zona pacífico, with Juan Sebastián Ramírez and the Sección de Referentes ARTBO 2016 with Pablo León de la Barra.  She has written essays, poetry and short fiction for different editorial and curatorial projects in Colombia, Spain, France, Mexico and the United States.
Together with Mónica Restrepo, Hernán Barón, and Herlyng Ferla, he co-funded La Nocturna, a platform that creates forms of meetings around the construction of knowledge that include the body, dance, and other performative formats.
Ericka and Herlyng Ferla created a vespertine art school for kids in Cali (La casa en el aire / the floating house) in which they explore how to support children knowledge through material thinking and awakening learning processes that puts the body in the foreground. Through this school they are putting into test the idea -taken from the Reggio Emilia approach to education- of how the distribution of the sensible (spatial and material decisions) can transform and question the classic power rol of teachers in education, and how to build spaces for transdisciplinary thinking.
