Luis Casanova Sorella, born in 1984 in Lima, lives and works in Vienna.
The multi-media works of Casanova Sorolla are defined through transformative processes. Two-dimensional artistic works hint at previously taken place and meticulously staged performances, which themselves find their source in traded but individually interpreted notations or mediated traditions between high and vernacular culture.
Transversal literally as well as in a political transferred sense; in Casanova Sorollas’ works over objects of cultural value – from folkloric to classic – complex sociocultural realities find their expression. Thereby it is the plurality of interpretability of meaning and the multilingualism of its speakers/interpreters, which bear for their complexity. Ephemerally appearing arts, such as music and dance, in diagrammatic annotations hint in traces at the complex relationships and the contingencies of concrete singularities.
