DESCRIPTION

This project by Peruvian born, New York and Lima-based artist Ishmael Randall Weeks will provide a meditation on recent Peruvian history in the form of a double slide projection using found slides that Weeks burns, punctures, cuts, and draws upon.  As the slides move in and out of focus and Weeks’ intervention ranges from minimal to extreme, he develops a personalized narrative response to the politically and socially charged moment of 1970s and ’80s Peru—among the most violent periods in recent history.
