“Kaleidoscopic Vision in the city of Lima”
From the 5th to the 27th of November, 2009
Centro Cultural de España, Natalio Sanchez 181, Lima, Peru.
Lima as a departure point, the only stimulus, direct contact with the city. Without preconceived ideas or previous studies we generated audio-visual projects and installations through real life street experiences, dialogue with it’s people and the appropriation and decontextualization of local resources. The exhibition consists of two well defined parts. First a photographic documentation of everything that caught our attention during the four weeks that we were in Peru. A visual stimuli that served as raw material to produce the pieces. Second, a synthesis of this experience materialized in the form of sculptural installations and a mural in the exhibition space of the prestigious Spanish Cultural Center in Lima.
A big thank you to: Jules Bay and her team; Alvaro García Vilches, David Flores-Hora and all the staff at CCE in Lima; Sierra Forest for the translation.
During our stay we tried to document everything as well as possible. Everything that caught our attention during our excursions throughout the city. This experience served as a base for all the projects that were formed during the exhibition (…)
The intense and chaotic traffic of Lima, the size of the city and the lack of a solid framework of “official” public transport excessively marks ones movement from one point to another (…)

This is, in our modest opinion, the greatest graphic advocate for the culture of cumbia and chicha music (…)
Another appropriation from the “chicha” culture (…)
We did five other pieces inspired by objects seen in our daily routine in Lima (…)
