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.
Work done by the 100 years anniversary of the birth of poet José María Arguedas. In the poem Ode to Jet, the poet describes the glare when he discovers the new perspective that gives you to travel on a plane. It questions the relationship of man and nature, and man and God. From this, I create a video that addresses the issues that accompanied the poet in his life: nature, man and language, with a narrative voice of the poem in Quechua, emphasizing the poet's intention to reassess the Andean worldview.
