Andrés Pereira Paz

  • Andrés Pereira Paz’s work regularly takes the form of textiles that explore the circulation of people and materials and how it affects national, regional and global imaginaries, revealing the construction of culture to be an ongoing and often contradictory process.  His work examines postcolonial issues from the perspective of the Andean region, particularly from his home country of Bolivia. The artist frequently references Andean art history, both from the pre-Columbian and colonial periods. He plays with this background and produces creative interpretations of contemporary Andean culture: the results are sometimes humorous, but always witty and incisive.
