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.

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.
