Pachamaria

Drawing on symbols of indigeneity, Pachamaria (La Virgen de Cuzco) outlines the troubled relationship between religion, identity, and colonialism. Referencing the paintings of the Cuzco school, the conflation of religion, violence, and holiness create a new understanding of a complex identity.
