My practice as a visual artist is focused on creating bridges - physical or symbolic - between individuals and / or communities; that have different cultures and geographic spaces. My work has transversal axes as: marginality, exclusion and invisibility. These are related to deep issues such as: migration, racism and particularly the historical memory associated with the internal armed conflict in Peru (1980 - 2000), which I have been developing for two years, creating a Memory Space with a specific community.
Formally, my work is in macro or micro scale; and for specific sites. My practice can be individual as well as collective. I believe in co-creation processes, as an individual, I am part of the collective artist group FIBRA ( www.fibracolectivo.com ) and as part of the community, we made a Memory Space with the people of Hualla in Ayacucho, Peru; and with nature, a project with Ostra mushrooms – bio materials.
At 713 kilometers from here it is an exhibition that shows the process record of the construction of the Chimpapampa Memory Space . I believe in art as a trigger for sensitivities and emotions and although it is
an informative exhibition where I will use objects (as event observing), such as earth, flowers, herbs and plants collected from the former military base Chimpapampa to create artistic work that conceptualizes the theme to which the exhibition revolves.
This project is at on going.
