This is the second solo show of the Peruvian artist Armando Andrade Tudela at the gallery.
Tudela uses installations, photographs, sculptures and works on paper in a practice that questions the notion of a single global language through the interest in the development of modernist local forms.
Notions of translation and displacement apply at the observation of how modern and contemporary global culture is integrated into Peruvian culture or cultures of the so-called peripheral areas. The use of different cultural products like long play covers, geometric patterns on truck rears or wefts of rattan used on furniture, reveal the modus operandi of the artist, the reconfiguration of signs and meanings in the constant reevaluation of the same object.
