Kukuli Velarde: Cantaros de Vida (The Isichapuitu Series)




Kukuli Velarde draws on the indigenous culture of her native Peru as well as her own personal history to express ideas about politics, history, and culture. Based on an ancient Mexican figure she saw at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, each elaborately detailed sculpture by Velarde serves as a kind of self-portrait representing her memories, beliefs, fears, impressions, and desires; many tell stories of the suffering of indigenous peoples, particularly that of Latin American women. Grouped together, the figures become a metaphor for wholeness, the"organs of a single body."
