Luis Enrique Zela-Koort


Peruvian artist and researcher. He focuses on technological responses to biases that would otherwise be catalogued as objective truth; deconstructing the anthropocene´s conceptual dynamics between culture and nature, and the ideological instrumentalization of science. He elaborates meta-fictions to frame a constantly evolving reality. His sculptures and videos create interactive, baroque installations- articulating digital tools and traditional processes..

Finalist for the XX Concurso Nacional PPUA, the ICPNA contemporary art prize, two ARTUS grants, he won Best Artistic Proposal in Espacio Tomado.
