 Shot in a near-rural area of Bolivia, the series is the outcome of a game played by four children, in which a cruel approach to death goes overlooked. Jugando explores the ways in which a spontaneous action, its context, and its memory speak to the building of an identity. It is also an inquiry into the processes that produce culture, beyond formal practices, as well as an attempt to consider, through new perspectives and everyday actions, the plasticity of memory and the body’s relationship with space.


BIO 

Andrés Bedoya (b. 1978, La Paz, Bolivia) currently lives and works in La Paz, Bolivia. Through the reinterpretation of personal and social watershed events, Bedoya's artworks use materials and spaces from the Bolivian context to address the plasticity of memory, the inconsistency of self-perception and the body’s relationship with time and death. With a degree in Arts and Design from the University of Texas, Austin, 2001, the artist has been shown at the 20th Videobrasil Festival, São Paulo, Brazil (2017), Abrons Arts Center, New York, USA (2012), Museo Nacional de Arte, La Paz, Bolivia (2009), and Happy Ending, New York, USA (2005), among other events and institutions.

The work is part of guest curator Gabriel Bogossian’s screening program The Lost Nature, Works from the Videobrasil Historical Collection.
