Artus is an independent non-profit organization that was born in 2018 as an initiative of a group of benefactors who seek to support contemporary Peruvian visual artists in order to contribute to their artistic growth, creative reflection and professional development, expanding their recognition at a global level.
Overseas residencies are an increasingly important component in artists' professional development, as it offers them the opportunity to develop their creativity and critical thinking in a global context, as well as build professional connections with other artists, curators, collectors and international critics.
Genietta Varsi was born in 1991 in Lima, Peru and is represented by Ginsberg Gallery from Lima, Peru. She is co-founder and co-director of SERES an independent space for creation, experimentation, exhibition and education of art.
“The three months of residence at the Delfina Foundation gave me the opportunity to link my work with new social and cultural contexts. In a space of exchange between arts professionals, I met people from different parts of the world, each one with a way of research and production, which allowed me to relate to different points of view, to know other ways of understanding art and to recognize myself within those possibilities.”
Agusuto Ballardo graduated in 2012 from the specialty of Engraving at the Faculty of Art and Design of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, with studies in Design at the National University of Engineering (Lima, Peru) and Art History at the Art Museum of Lima. His projects are related to a visual investigation on the use of geometry in pre-Columbian cultures, generating analogies that explore color, proportion and shape as links between the pre-Hispanic past and the period of modernity in the country.
“Having done the PIVÔ residence through the Artus scholarship has promoted my work in a new research path.
