Ana Teresa Barboza

Ana Teresa Barboza

Peru

Ana Teresa’s work is based on fabric as a starting point. The fibers in her work function as an imitation of enveloping natural objects. Her textiles are skins that mimic organic growth. Her installations of two-dimensional works, even architectures, have a craft origin with an emphasis on molds. Sometimes a photo is the starting point of a textile and sometimes the surface of an object, which are replaced by the fabric or palm.

For the 22 Bienal de Arte Paiz, Barboza exhibits in co-production with Rafael Freyre, whom the sea and the encounter with diverse elements of nature in Lima, influenced the artist’s formation and sensibility as a designer and architect. His work combines creative projects that optimize the Peruvian heritage and tradition that dabble in ancient techniques.
