The 60th International Art Exhibition of the Biennale of Venice will take place from Saturday 20 April to Sunday 24 November, 2024 (pre-opening on April 17, 18 and 19), curated by Adriano Pedrosa under the title FOREIGNERS EVERYWHERE.

At the Peruvian Pavilion, the chosen project to embody the essence of the country is entitled COSMIC TRACES by the esteemed artist Roberto Huarcaya (1959 | Lima, Peru). This exhibition is curated by Alejandro León Cannock (1980 | Lima, Peru), and benefits from the curatorial insights of Joan Fontcuberta (1955 | Barcelona, Spain), Andrea Jösch(1973 | Santiago, Chile), and Amanda Antunes (1986 | São Paulo, Brazil). The exhibition project introduces an installation that brings together a collection of remarkable works.

A monumental photogram meticulously conceived by artist Roberto Huarcaya in the heart of the Amazon rainforest –precisely within the Bahuaja Sonene National Park, nestled in the Tambopata jungle of Peru. Against the backdrop of this lush setting, Huarcaya unfolded a 30-meter photosensitive paper roll beneath a towering palm tree during a storm, allowing the lightning to etch its imprint onto the paper during the night. This photogram was revealed and fixed in-situ in a set-up darkroom amidst the jungle, utilizing water from nearby rivers. Notably, the liquid remnants from the development journeyed to Lima, ensuring environmentally responsible disposal. Complementing this visual masterpiece, a sculpture of a canoe by the talented artist Antonio Pareja (1953 | Lima, Peru), and a piano composition envisioned by Mariano Zuzunaga (1953 | Lima, Peru).

The proposal emerges at the crossroads of photography, installation, and land art, challenging our approach to (re)presenting the environment. It serves as an immersive, fleeting ritual sanctuary designed to awaken consciousness, spark imagination, and promote meditation. By doing so, it encourages viewers to reconsider their surroundings with a sensitive and non-instrumental perspective.
