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.
Is a project related to Peruvian identity.Peru is a country where racism is extreme and is a tabu. Is a Facebook application where it provides options for users to create their avatars (different types of eyes, hair, faces, different types of clothes by geographical areas etc) these options are adapted to the environment in Peru.(peruvian own context) In a playful way whrere you can go into the imaginary of each user and then to create the collective imaginary as the information that each usercan create avatars by geographical areas (with the most used options). The project may help to know howt the Peruvians see themselfs, and if we respondto aspirational models or really accept us with different biotypes that exist in Peru. www.identificate.pe
