Mauricio Freyre

His projects revolve around structures and systems of ideas between the constructed and the projected. His practice focuses on blind spots, dark areas, accidents, distortions and forms of consciousness that are excluded. He is currently working on a project that studies the role of botanics and its agency within the colonial sciences in Perú, exploring the political and subversive dimension of the plant world in relation to a western epistemology.
Recently he has obtained in the National Prize for Experimental Films awarded by the Ministry of Culture in Peru. His films and installations have been part of different programs and exhibitions including FIC Valdivia, Les Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, TENT Rotterdam, Unforseen Festival, Nederlands Film Festival and Fundación Telefonica Lima.
