100 Happy Days: Double Life Art

LIMA – We enjoyed a colorful introduction to Peruvian art inside the ICPNA – Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano.

Mark translated the exhibit descriptions. Artist Sigfried Laske literally waited for paint to dry as he created bold, surreal landscapes on earth and under the sea.

It’s the free gallery that keeps on giving.
Art gallery workers gave us brochures and posters.

My favorite work was by Miguel Aguirre: Doble Cuerpo.

According to the exhibit notes, Aguirre used black tape and transformed ordinary household objects into simple pinhole cameras.

He gave new life to items like beer cans and juice boxes. They became the objects of art and the art makers. He shot black and white photos of household staples with his kitchen cameras.
