Romina Chuls, La montaña en sus venas, tejido anillado Paracas sobre dibujo, 86 x 130 cms, 2018.

The pre-Columbian technique of ring-weaving, typical of the Paracas culture (700 BC and 200 AD), is the starting point of the three artists / artisans. His concern is set in the current era. In order to be involved in this problem, with their work they project themselves into the future by placing their gaze on an evaded past. Thus, they propose a collective sample that arises from the intention to recover an ancestral textile technique. 

Through textiles they are recognized and reinvented. They weave without establishing limits with the desire to connect opposite concepts. Each of the artists approaches the notion of duality from different perspectives, the same ones that dialogue and empower each other. While Ivet explores the solidity and fragility of pieces that unite fabric and ceramics, Fiorella explores the private and the public with textiles that allude to the domestic. Finally, Romina, through drawing and weaving, identifies aspects of cultural constructions related to women. 

The exhibition Hilos de la [a]tradición: deviniendo dualidades will be open to the public from Wednesday, July 18 until Saturday, August 18, 2018 in the Vinatea Reinoso room (Law Court, second floor) of the Cultural Center of San Marcos, Av. Nicolás de Piérola 1222, University Park, Historical Center of Lima. It can be visited from Monday to Saturday, at 10:00 a.m. at 1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
