LIP had the opportunity to interview the plastic artist Augusta Sarria Larco whose exhibition “HUELLAS, the skin of memory …”, was just shown in the gallery Guzmán & Lazo.
The exhibition is a journey through and out of ourselves. It is “a confrontation with the void, the uncertainty, of conquering the unknown, of closing circles, the spirit of resilience recorded in the DNA of every human being, perhaps in the skin of memory”.
Augusta Sarria Larco is a Peruvian artist who graduated from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru with a specialty in Painting. She is currently part of the group of visual artists Des-Bordes made up of well-known artists from Peru. Throughout her career, she has presented individual exhibitions both nationally and internationally in countries such as Spain and the United States.
Her impressive talent and way of seeing the art world fascinated us here at Living in Peru and we just had to share! The following is an interview with the Artist Augusta Sarria Larco:
What role does the artist have in society?
With what art do you identify yourself most?
Every expression of the human being interests me and inspires me.
What is an artistic vision of life?
It is to live deeply every moment and feel it in the skin. Be constantly connected with EVERYTHING. Be able to feel and feel the need to communicate.
What do you dislike about the art world?
