About Andrea Canepa (Peru, 1980) View artist profile >>

Working across drawing, sculpture and textiles, Andrea Canepa explores systems and patterns designed to organize, categorize and manage knowledge, interpretation and cultural symbolism, as found in the objects she appropriates, such as subway maps, Latin American flags and Oriental rugs. She then rearranges their key elements according to different criteria – such as colour, shape or order of appearance – to reveal the hidden meanings concealed by original organisational principles. She intends, for example, to interfere with payment methods for local services, causing them to fail at the tasks for which they were designed and highlighting the automatism that underpins late capitalism.

Andrea Canepa lives and works in Valencia (Spain) and Berlin. Recent exhibitions include “C.I.T.I” at Sala de Arte Joven de Madrid, Madrid (2015), “Los Agricultores” at Sant Andreu Contemporani, Barcelona (2014), “Mi(g)radas” at the II Biennial of Photography, Lima (2014), and “Generaciones 2014” at La Casa Encendida, Madrid (2014). She was awarded the Endesa Grant in 2013 and the “ARCO Young Artists Prize” in 2014, the Miquel Casablancas Prix in Sant Andreu Contemporani, Barcelona and the PULSE Prix in PULSE Art Fair Miami. She won the Cité des Arts Grant for residence in Paris (2013) and the Gasworks Grant in London (2015).
