Vicente Mollestad’s
artistic practice develops within an around
the West’s relationship to the non-Western.

Often through connecting phenomenas, ideas and references that were, in some way or another, lost or overlooked. Throughout the body of work there is a recurring interest in the problematics of the seemingly inseperable relationship between the personal and intimate to the political and historical.

Among recent projects is the making of an archive of lesser known European cannibal exploitation film, investigating and questioning cannibalism as anti-colonial strategy, and looking into the role of globale immigration and world politics in relation to the Norwegian rap scene from the 80’s up until present time. 


Vicente is currently based in La Paz, Bolivia.

            And with them, or after them, may there not come that even bolder adventurer — the first geolinguist, who, ignoring the delicate, transient lyrics of the lichen, will read beneath it the still less communicative, still more passive, wholly atemporal, cold, volcanic poetry of the rocks: each one a word spoken, how long ago, by the earth itself, in the immense solitude, the immenser community, of space.
