Ximena Garrido-Lecca, Paisaje Antrópico,
Max Wigram Gallery

Through her compelling sculptures and installations, Ximena Garrido-Lecca examines the fraught history of Peru, shaped largely by the uneasy entanglement of indigenous and colonial cultures. She often recreates quintessentially Peruvian sites, like a decorative fountain or shrines to the dead, presenting them as visual manifestations of her country’s history. For example, in her “Walls of Progress” series (2009-) she makes miniature replicas of mud walls on which political propaganda and commercial advertisements are painted, highlighting the striking mix of indigenous architectural traditions and Western messaging strategies.
