Patricia Esquivias

(Caracas, Venezuela, 1979)

Narrator of stories whose works explore how social relations are shaped by symbolic and narrative mechanisms that imply acts of exclusion and destruction. Her videos, sketches, photos, sculptures and installations deconstruct these hegemonic narratives and offer us alternative channels for reconstructing them, with this firm commitment to revealing lost stories and bringing visibility to narratives that take issue with official story lines and the hegemonic channels for conveying knowledge. Taking as her starting point events, celebrities, cultural items, popular cultural phenomena, archive pictures and stories that would pass unnoticed if we applied other research methods, she coordinates her narratives to question or fictionalise the past as a method for reviewing this approach where some interpretations have been displacing others.
