Jose Carlos Martinat and Enrique Mayorga present a series of projects carried out since 2003 where, through the use of software, programming, mechanics, objects and sculptural interventions, they analyze and question the performances of individuals and the contexts in which they operate.

About the Artists:

Jose Carlos Martinat (Lima-Peru) creates art at the interface of real and virtual worlds; his sources of inspiration include architecture and the urban milieu, as well as human and cyberspace memories. His multimedia installations and sculptural assemblages incorporate a diversity of materials and strategies to alter preconceptions with regards to where things belong. For example, Martinat mounted printers on an old government building in Peru to print out state secrets that had been declassified.

Martinat's work has taken part in various exhibitions in Latin-American, Europe and the USA including: Shanghai Biennial (China), Tate Modern (London), Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Vigo (Spain), La Laboral (Spain), Mali (Lima), and Tate (London) among others. He is represented by Revolver gallery Lima and Leme gallery Sao Paulo.

Kiko Mayorga researches and promotes the social adaption of technologies in Lima, Peru. He has worked in a range of curatorial and medial experiments dealing with the particularities of local technological appropriation. He is an active participant of the OLPC volunteering community in Peru, promoting and organizing talks, workshops, field activities, etc. Since 2009 he co-directs the Escuelab.org project, an informal school/laboratory in the center of Lima that hosts processes bridging technology, education and local culture. The activities in Escuelab contribute to creating flexible networks of independent developers and researchers that are share experiences and start projects around technology in education, preservation of cultural diversity and the development of digital citizenship in the particular peruvian contexts.
