Kukuli Velarde: CORPUS exhibition
January 9 @ 9:00 am - March 3 @ 5:00 pm
CORPUS is 15 ceramic entities, 15 banners, and light and sound components which represent the annual Corpus Christi Festival in her native Cusco, Peru. “CORPUS narrates the history of my country of origin, incorporating pre-Columbian and Colonial sensibilities by visually mimicking syncretism within a contemporary narrative. My concern with this issue coincides with the aesthetic and cultural decolonizing actions that are taking place now around the world. Colonization and coloniality have for centuries forced populations to dismiss, among other things, their regional aesthetics, including their understanding of personal beauty.” Kukuli Velarde
