INSTANT PHOTOGRAPHS AT THE SAN MARCOS MUSEUM, IN LIMA, PERU
On Friday, August 10, the San Marcos Art Museum, Lima (Peru), inaugurates snapshots|instantáneas LIM / MAD / MEX, a photographic project carried out by Luisa Fernanda Lindo during 2014-2016 in the cities of Lima, Madrid and Mexico City . The Peruvian artist counted for this project with the support of the SEGIB Scholarship / Casa de Velásquez, the Academy of France in Madrid (Spain) and AMEXID / SRE (Mexico). The exhibition will take place in the Juan Acha room of the San Marcos Cultural Center and can be visited until September 8.
In her work, Lindo takes a tour of the three cities through snapshots that break with the bidimensionality of photography, presenting the image as a device of estrangement. In this way, the work allows a dialogue between the familiar and the unknown. Lindo explains that the goal of snapshots|instantáneas LIM / MAD / MEX will develop a visual, auditory and sensitive memory of each city.
The photographs taken by the artist encompass the peripheries and spaces that have witnessed, throughout history, economic, demographic, architectural or cultural transformations. In this way, he proposes to establish between these crosses that allow an approach to understand our past and present.
