Vicente Mollestad

Vicente Mollestad is an artist, ex-rapper, lo-fi guitarist and displaced being finding his way back. His practice develops within and around the theme of the West’s (conflicted) relationship to the non-Western. His work looks at how these two negotiate and position themselves in relation to power, history, philosophy and politics through his own autobiography and position as a meeting point between them. 

Since 2017 been based in La Paz, Bolivia, gradually favouring alternative spaces as a basis for production of meaning and discourse, through a flexible practice that ranges from text production, sound, interventions, activism, painting, performance and photo.

He is currently in a residency stay in Skien, Norway.

From Studies in the History of the Renaissance

            Like the elements of which we are composed, the action of these forces extends beyond us; it rusts iron and ripens corn. Far out on every side of us those elements are broadcast, driven by many forces; and birth and gesture and death and the springing of violets from the grave are but a few out of ten thousand resultant combinations. That clear, perpetual outline of face and limb is but an image of ours, under which we group them - a design in a web, the actual threads of which pass out beyond it.
