Sergio Pacheco (1998, PE) is an artist working around a diversity of themes focused on the processes of construction and deconstruction of identity. Through a critical and disruptive gaze, his work confronts the power relations and hegemonic discourses that define and shape the diverse senses of belonging and recognition. From there, using fiction and speculation, he questions and re-elaborates the meanings of a concept so ambiguous, idealized and contradictory as identity, whether it is individual, collective, national, cultural, gender, etc.
His practice is shaped towards a work of aesthetic and conceptual programming, as a constant 'sampling' through the appropriation -almost parasitic- of a shared imaginary, in which many times his authorship -like identity itself- is presented in a clear and emphatic way; other times discreet and veiled, and even, at times, absent. On that basis, he revises and transforms established discourses, inventing possible realities and in the process evidencing a constant void in the image of how we understand ourselves in relation to the other and our history.
Sergio works in a range of media from drawing, painting, sculpture, video, writing and installation. He has a Bachelor and a Master degree in Visual Arts from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, where he has also taught. His work features in several private collections and has been included in various group exhibitions both in his country and abroad. He currently lives and works in Lima.
