The Colectivo Catrileo+Carrión is comprised of artists Antonio Catríleo (born as Jaime Araya) and Manuel Carrión. The collective uses video art as an extension for their interdisciplinary research-production art practice. Their work focuses on subjects connected to Indigenous identity in the Americas, such as the problematic framing of Indigenous identity from a colonial lens. The collective works in video art, installation, flow charts and writings, testing artistic mechanisms that trigger the political imagination of the viewer.

Of particular note among the collective’s filmography is “Famew mvlepan kaxvlew” (or an archeology of renaming) documents the transidentitary process and fragmentary moments of Antonio Catrileo, who was born as Jaime Araya. The video documents reflections behind this decision to legally change his name, which can only be done once in Chile. This work responds to Catrileo’s light colouring and considers internal racism and colonialism in an artistic intervention as dramatic as changing the birth certificate the state keeps as proof of your existence. This video is a document of the renaming process prior to the legal change.
