Sergio Verastegui

Peru Born in: 1981

carcity of means and gestures constitutes the basis of Sergio Verastegui's reflection regarding the question of the relationship to reality. His works are to be considered as annotations, as forms of writing close to fragment. The rudimentary appearance of Sergio Verastegui's works, made of poor materials, rebus or of salvage elements, could permit a comparison with Arte Povera.

Nevertheless, the artist's approach is not the same, it is not about a guerrilla against the consummation society, but an expression of a « new poverty », organizing in an unexpected and casually fortuitous manner poetic encounters between different objects and materials. Bringing together a strong material presence and conceptualism, Sergio Verastegui's works appear as fragments of realities extracted from a torn-up world.

Verastegui willingly quotes Alain Badiou with regards to his own work : "The importance lies not in knowing what one has forgotten but in understanding what has left its mark on us". De-contextualized and re-contextualized, the fragment-traces that are the components of his installations, if they do not lose their original quality as vectors of meaning, readily adopt others.

Of Peruvian origin, Sergio Verastegui lives in Paris after having studied at the School of visual arts of Rio de Janeiro and at Ecole nationale supérieure d'art Villa Arson in Nice.
