Ximena Ferrer Pizarro
Ximena Ferrer-Pizarro ́s (1994, Lima-Peru) work demonstrates the tragicomedy of a migration process, a conservative family, a modest childhood, and other topics that are not always that personal. Her artwork begins with the stories that she compiles between Peru and Germany The life in cultural and social contrasts. Sometimes fearlessly exaggerating, then shyly Influenced by Latin American art in conflict with her European education, Ximena create sensitive and vibrant images with telenovela character that play with the latinamerican stereotype and cultural knowledge, this way she tries to reconcile with her colonial trauma. These paintings are characterized by anthropomorphic and absurd characters that tell their different micropolitical stories. Those to live, those invented or dreamed. Hard, weird and funny.
