Aldo Chaparro

Born 1965 in Lima, Perú.
Lives and works in México City, New York and Lima.

Most of Aldo's work is based in quick processes that involve a close interplay with the material. Aldo think that the resulting objects of the confrontation with the material is an evidence document (from the same way he would make, in case of crime, the reconstruction of it) from the process that transformed the material in an artistic object. In his text pieces when he uses as a source of media information, songs lyrics or preexisting work, Chaparro use the copy paranoia, the subjects relationated with the authoring and the authenticity generated in the witness.
