From February 23 to April 15, 2017 the Spanish Center Center in Lima will host the individual exhibition of Sixe Paredes entitled “BEFORE, AFTER, NOW“, organized by Morbo Gallery (Lima) and previously presented in the emblematic Qorikancha Museum in Cusco.
This exhibition was made up of tapestries, quipus and ceramics created in a process that encompasses Peru and Barcelona once again re-validating Peruvian millenary art, bridging two worlds, the traditional and the contemporary, and therefore reinventing the idea of ancestral reconnection.
Also part of the exhibition were the murals “Numerical abstraction” and “Quipu Abstraction” that Sixe painted on the front and side of the CCE. The first is a personal exploration of the ontological and functional structure of numbers. Often observed in their mystical projection in millenary cultures her numbers are used symbolically by the artist to speak of “modernity” in which the individual is reduced to a statistic and regulated according to their “exchange value“. In “Quipu abstracción”, he brings the prodigious system of Inca accounting and writing to painting, replicating the intense colors of the threads and knots of the quipus in a phosphorescent polychrome that stands out against a black background.
The renowned electronic music duo Dengue Dengue Dengue will be there for the opening of the exhibition, which will take place on February 23, at 7:00 p.m.
