Although their colors, textures, and origins allude to a more domestic remembrance, perhaps the series should be considered a collection of images of the country’s public memory. As part of the multichannel installation from which they originally derive, they reference – intentionally or not – the Allegory of the Cave. Consequently, through this dark registry, they are part of a desired-though-elusive reality, sort of like a ashback, that also documents a period of mass territorial urbanization that took place half a century ago, rede ning Peruvian reality on many levels.
