Hector Canonge is an interdisciplinary artist whose work incorporates the use of New-media technologies, physical environments, cinematic and performance art narratives. He explores and treats issues related to construction of identity, gender roles, and the politics of migration. His performances mediate movement, endurance, and ritualistic processes as well as the interaction with the public. He studied Comparative Literature, Filmmaking, and Integrated Media Arts in New York City.
Juan Pablo Arce is an autodidactic performance artist, he studied philosophy and anthropology in Cochabamba (Bolivia). His work focus revolves around the experimental conjunction of symbolic rituals and actions situated in the everyday life in search of a dialectic between the time-space-conditions of rituality and common, political and artistic activities. These elements, forces and singularities are initially unveiled and activated, decontextualized and liberated to be found transmuted and reconfigured.
