Elkin Calderón Guevara, Diego Piñeros García
Calderón & Piñeros is a collective made up of Colombian artists Elkin Calderón Guevara and Diego Piñeros García. Their artistic projects generate new approaches to art from hybrid perspectives and disciplines, questioning hegemonic forms of knowledge and power. The collective has been interested in displacement as a metaphor to be able to meet other realities, as well as to create links between memory and the ruins of the past. Through the audiovisual medium they establish poetics of time and space, playing with "Mise-en-scène", that document events, places and objects. At the same time this narratives produce dislocations and alterations that lead to new readings of reality.
Calderón & Piñeros has been awarded various grants for the development of art projects such as the COINCIDENCIA Pro Helvetia Residency Programme in Villa Ruffieux, Switzerland, 2018/ 2019; the National Scholarship for science, art, and technology labs in Plataforma, Bogotá, 2017. The group participated in important video festivals such as Rencontres Internationales Paris / Berlin (2018), VideoBrasil (2017). Experiments in Cinema, New Mexico (2016). Nominated to the Luis Caballero Award 2019/ 2020, Bogotá. The collective presented solo exhibitions at Deluge Contemporary in Victoria, Canada (2020). Museo Carrillo Gil. Gabinete de Video. Ciudad de México (2018). "Caja Negra" (2017) at MAMM (Museum of Modern Art of Medellín).
