Felipe Esparza’s work creates dynamic links and tensions between cinema, visual arts, and video creation. In his projects, a strong interest in social content coexists with an exploration of themes such as nature, non-verbal communication, the sacred, its symbolic derivations and the relationship between image and time, image and history, and image and truth. He approaches the complex representation of these themes by developing visual narratives in which the contemporary visual imagination cohabits with archives and with local and universal cultural codes, to the point of creating pieces of metalanguage.
He is currently director of the audiovisual and design studio Milk and selected artist at Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains, France. Felipe lives and works between Peru and France.
