Marcela Ribadeneira

Marcela Ribadeneira is a writer, journalist, film critic and visual artist. She was born in Quito, Ecuador in 1982. Her latest short story book entitled Golems (2018), consists of 6 stories dealing with death, violent rationality, experimentation with living beings, physics, naturalized horror, empathy and meta-literature.

Ribadeneira’s writing [in Golems] is forceful and exposes itself with an unstoppable avalanche of images, allegories, disfigurements and horrors. For those who dare to feel the vertigo of these pages, nothing will ever be the same, either because the daze after the fall leaves them with permanent and irreversible consequences, or because the golems that enclose these abysses will never let them go.
