The show features one major installation by the artist from the seventies, one of the most complex and representative works of Burga’s conceptual text works.
The work “Obra que desaparece cuando el espectador trata de acercarse (propuesta III) / Work that Disappears when the Viewer Tries to Approach It (Proposal III)” represents Burga’s interest in the immaterial and in drawing as the basis for the interpretation of her installations.
Born in 1935, in Inquitos, Peru, the artist is based in Lima, Peru.
