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.
Site specific intervention in the frame of National Encounter of Visual Art in Trujillo.

Phrase written on the floor and reflected in the mirror. The phrase was written cleaning the dust from the floor:
I PUT OUR DESTINY AND THAT OF THE PEOPLE UNDER THE PROTECTION OF HEAVEN
LONG LIVE THE COUNTRY, LONG LIVE THE INDEPENDENCE!
