Andrés Pereira Paz

Bolivia

The Revenge of the Represented, Fabric, prosthetic eyes, arrows, French Gobelin, Dimensions variable, 2017

The constant shift in the sense of identity, set against the endless fluctuation of people and narratives, is the context in which Andrés Pereira Paz operates. His works examine the role that pre-Hispanic and postcolonial arts and crafts play in the construction of cultural identity. Appropriating Andean imagery, he explores how the collective and individual can both support and undermine one another in this process.
