BIANCA LEE VASQUEZ

Bianca Lee Vasquez defines herself as an “earth-body artist”. Born in the United States with Cuban-Ecuadorian roots, she currently lives and works in Paris. Her works are based on the idea of committing the human body turning it into an object of experimentation. With her ephemeral performance interventions, where the body and nature are always the protagonists, she invokes contemplation, the search for the essential, the spiritual and the sacred, reinvesting nature’s role as mother protector and generator of life.

Her work, perceived as sculptural and close to ritual, involves performances destined towards a communion between human being, nature and art, along with the rediscovery of her own origins and cultural heritage, a tribute to mythological and spiritual prehispanic traditions, and a reconstruction of the ancient relationship of harmony between her Inca ancestors and the cosmos; her ultimate mission being the quest for balance between the individual and the environment in its purest expression.

“I became an artist to be free and explore my experiences, my feelings, my thoughts. I didn’t feel like exploring these in a studio and making two-dimensional works. For me, the natural place for me to carry out my art was in nature. I want to enter vast landscapes and create a close connection to the very essence of the earth because I believe I am related to her. It is very important to me to promote a sense of connection with nature.”

She is currently working on an individual exhibition for Bubenberg Galerie (Paris) and another in tandem collaboration with the artist Lena Marie Emrich for Julio Galerie (Paris), both will open this coming autumn.

Bianca is wearing Pirandello top, Pirandello skirt and Brian coat.

“My artistic practice began with a profound need to explore my identity and my origins, and this helped me to grow internally. Now I prefer not to be solely identified by a nationality, gender or race. Geographical borders are concepts I find hard to accept. I am much more interested by what we have in common, what unites us and, more specifically, what unites all other living species.

For Bianca, practicing rituals via the medium of installations, or as she calls them, ceremonial performances, is a way to provoke a much greater social impact.
