Appreciate: Guerra de la Paz
The next time someone tells me to pick up my clothes off the floor, I’ll just tell them I’m working on an installation piece in the same vein as artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz, also known as Guerra de la Paz. This design duo has been collaborating since 1996 on sculptures, photography, and installations. Their works tend to touch on the topic of consumerism. Their pieces are compiled of recycled clothing found in a flea market in Miami, where they are based. It is their way of commenting on the fact that people purchase things until the next trend comes along and discards them, but a person’s trash is another person’s treasure. There is beauty in the disregarded. You can check out more of the group’s work on their official website.
