Ojo Andino Peru - Imago Mundi
Peruvian contemporary artists
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Mirko Lauer, Stefania Malacchini, Aisha & Roberto Ascóniga Ascóniga
A collage of visions - painters, sculptors, video artists, illustrators, textile artists, engravers, watercolourists and ceramic artists - that reveal Peruvian contemporary art and the culture, traditions and energy of a country and its people. 140 artworks (including the magical works of 20 artists in the Peruvian Amazon, with their world steeped in symbolism and mysticism), which, through colours, abstract graphic elements, interventions that reference magical-shamanic practices, material consistency and visionary and conceptual variations, together compose a mosaic of tracks and expressions, gestures, poetics and materiality that expose the Peru of today and yesterday.
Ojo Andean Peru. Peruvian contemporary artists is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
