'ISICHAPUITU (MELANCHOLY, FLAKY, NETA, Peruvian Kukuli Velarde makes work indebted to folk tradition and traditional ornamentation, exploring the new politics of identity, estrangements of context and acts of “forgetfulness” that occur as art is displaced from its origin. ‘Entangled’ is cut from a series of works exploring memory, fear, desire and ideology through figurative icons that, in tandem, present a larger picture of the artists identity and belief in a shared system of traits. The snake rears in appearance over several of these figures in the “Isichapuitu” series as Velarde — albeit here a transformed, mythic vision of the serpent — and surrounds the figure in a suffocating, controlling mass.
