Armando Andrade Tudela

b. 1975, Lima | lives and works in Saint-Étienne, France

Armando Andrade Tudela is interested in form and its relationship to culture, place, and time. In addition to working in installation, film, sculpture, and slide projection, the Peruvian artist was associated with Lima-based artists’ collective and exhibition space Espacio La Culpable (2006–08), which formed as a reaction to conventional systems of art display and commerce, foregrounding process over product and providing Lima with a flexible platform for collaboration. For Untitled (GCC) 1 (2013) he sandblasted a geometric grid into the surface of a copper-colored mirror veiled by a sheet of plastic similar to those used in construction. The resultant blurred reflections allude to the distorted and illusory aspects of “progress.”
