César Cuspoca is a Colombian artist, based in France since 2012.
His artistic practice principally nourishes questions of perception, the duality between appearance and disappearance, and materialism and immaterialism. It is, however, more concretely the idea of experience which takes a central role in his approach and which allows him to structure his creative process.
The starting point for these experiences is often linked to the desire to explore unchartered territories, sometimes hostile environments, for example walking for hours over an icy fjord at -30°, getting lost inside the crater of a volcano, spending many weeks in an Amazonian forest among an American-Indian community, or visiting to the beach of an undiscovered village.
Throughout these experiences, whether alone or accompanied by a production and research team, he produces still images, videos, and sound recordings. He combines these gathered materials with elements of the local environment to build installations in situ which speak in the vernacular and have a resonance with the place where the work is both created and exhibited.
