Guerra de la Paz: FOLLOW THE LEADER, Craft Alliance Grand Center, St. Louis, MO

September 16, 2011- January 29, 2012

Craft Alliance

St. Louis, MO 63103

LECTURE:
From The Bottom of the Heap: recycled Clothing as a Form of Expression
Free and open to the public
Thursday, September 15, 6:30pm
At the Kemper Art Museum in conjunction with Sam Fox School
of Art & Design

Guerra de la Paz is the composite name that represents the creative team of Cuban born artists, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz. Follow the Leader is an installation named after a popular children’s activity that most of us are familiar with: where the object of the game is to pick a leader and then line up behind. Guerra de la Paz take on this game is inspired by the subtle yet compelling message behind it. Resonating social order and natural selection, the installation transcends child’s play as it worms its way through the space, touching on the uncanny parallels between this harmless pastime and the complexities of hierarchy in society, where “survival of the fittest”, delineated by Darwin’s theory of evolution, reigns supreme at the heart of all competition. Guerra de la Paz began working with garments as a material and saw themselves as vehicles guided by the essence and silent histories of the discarded clothing. The installation aims to depict both a harmonious pecking order and the ramifications of decline.

GUERRA DE LA PAZ, Business Ties Reborn as Deadly Snakes

By

August 10, 2011

http://1800recycling.com/

In the capable hands of artistic duo Guerra de la Paz, repurposed ties become deadly cobras — symbols of fear and oppression in the corporate world.

In a corporate setting where gray, black and navy blue are the dominant colors, the humble tie is the one accessory that can give a bit of color to a man’s attire. Yet ties are hated by many who have to don their business uniform daily, as they find this piece of clothing too constricting — in many respects. Here we’ll find out just how right they are to feel this way.

‘Home: Dream Home’ an edgy exhibit at Praxis

BY BETH DUNLOP

THE MIAMI HERALD

July 17, 2011

Nothing is quite what it seems in the exhibition Home: Dream Home, and yet everything is indeed exactly what it is.

A globe-shaped pendant lamp by Ernesto Oroza sparkles like glass. It’s actually layers — many layers — of Scotch tape, and at the same time, a fully functioning light fixture . (It’s called, whimsically enough, Little Havana Lampshade.)

….

Home: Dream Home, on view through Aug. 13 at Praxis International Art, is a showhouse like no other. Though it’s a gallery exhibition, you can touch, sit on or in the case of the “fur’’ rug — roll around on the art.

Summer Hours Mon-Fri 10-6PM

This year’s summer show is filled with a variety of works of all different mediums.  Intricate patterns, diverse textures and the use of color,transparency and glossy finishes make the work of these artists exquisite and amusing.

Intertwined fabrics are suspended in an apparent empty space, oil drippings and collaged paper, flowers, buttons and clay, characterize the physical structure of the work of David Antonio Cruz and Nina Surel. The Miami-based duo Guerra de la Paz also resorts to the use of fabrics.
Recycled clothing is the medium of choice to explore the manipulation of textiles that breathe new life to these rescued remains. The properties of fibers, yarn and dies in textile design, are translated to wood, resin, pencil, and stickers by Nancy Saleme. Similarly, Firelei Baez evokes popular traditions of the Caribbean in a delicate use of gouache, watercolor, and thin lines of ink on paper in beautifully painted patterns.

Praga, June 16-26, 2011

Piazzeta of the National Theatre

Narodni Trida 2, Praha 1

At Piazzetta between the National Theatre and New Stage Theatre (ex-Laterna Magika) you will find a dwelling of thirty white cubes/black boxes. This architectural maze is inhabited by performative projects by scenographers, performers, choreographers, film directors, drama theatre, installation artists, fashion designers, writers, painters…

It’s a live exhibition that will talk to you only if you talk back to it. This living and breathing exhibition will tell you stories, and the more time you spend there the more it will speak to you. It will teach you to dance, and it will ask you to listen. It will require positioning and it will let you get lost. If you are afraid of intimacy – you better not enter.

Guerra de la Paz (Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz)

The Latin American Art Journal

March 14, 2011

Cuban born American artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz are the collaborative duo Guerra de la Paz . Originally sourcing their materials from the waste bins of second-hand goods shipping companies in Miami’s Little Haiti, Guerra De La Paz make their sculptures from the discarded items of daily life. Viewing their practice as a kind of ‘archaeology’, their work engages with the history inherent in common debris and its possibility for recycled usage. In Nine, a giant mound of clothing heaps with strata of prom dresses, Christmas jumpers, and embarrassing yesteryear fads, bearing down with the weight of a civilisation and its disowned memories. Beneath the fringes of the hulking mass can be seen the feet of nine people supporting the load, a testimony to the strength and value of community.
