Two Blue Skies: Cecilia Jurado Chueca at ICPNA
The Peruvian artist living in New York, C.J. Chueca (Cecilia Jurado Chueca) presents an exhibition where the thematic axis is the migration from the countryside to the city, focusing on the transformation of the spirit and identity that this change entails.
Through paintings, drawings and ceramics modeled by hand, Chueca makes reference to his own past, to the family of his father who migrated from Muquiyauyo, Jauja, to Lima, like so many other migrant families from different regions of the country.
The exhibition opens on Friday, April 6 at the ICPNA San Miguel Gallery and will be open to the public until May 13. The visiting hours are from Monday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. at 8:00 p.m. Free income.
C.J. Chueca collects a fragment of the poem "El Río" by Javier Heraud to refer to his exhibition. "My exhibition transits from one place to another. From the river to the sea. From an intense blue sky to a dark sky. From an adobe wall to a wall of tiles. From floors full of potatoes to floors full of stones to floors full of garbage bags. From dancing to falling exhausted. From working to dying. "
"Sometimes we think that a radical change is necessary, that the place where we are does not welcome us, or we do not like it anymore, or maybe we have no other option than to go." As happened to my father's family, a huayco came and He took all his crops, his house, and they were left alone, with nothing, beside arid lands. "
