Felipe Esparza (Talara, 1985). Felipe Esparza's work creates dynamic links and tensions between cinema, plastic arts and video creation. In his projects there is a marked interest in social content and an exploration of themes such as nature, non-verbal communication, the sacred, its symbolic derivatives and the relationship between image and time, image and history and image and truth. He tackles the complex representation of these themes elaborating visual narratives where the contemporary visual imaginary cohabits with the archive and with local and universal cultural codes, reaching the point of obtaining metalanguage pieces.
His videos and video installations have been seen in national art centers such as: MALI, Luis Miro Quesada, Lugar de la Memoria, Ministerio de Cultura (Lima) and international as: A la Gaite Lyrique (Paris), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), Triennial Guangzhou Image (China), Shangyuang Contemporary Art Museum (Beijing), Videobrasil Festival (Sao Paulo), Lisbon Municipal Chamber (Portugal), Los Angeles Film Forum, HANGAR Contemporary Art Production Centre (Barcelona), Reina Sofia Museum (Madrid), Buenos Aires Video Art Festival. He is currently an artist in residence at Le Fresnoy - National Studio of Contemporary Arts.
