Along her artistic trajectory, Raquel Esquives’s work has always evolved around one constant theme: the building up of the identity.
Most of her work is based on the investigation of archeological remains and anthropological studies. She is interested in finding new concepts from societies, particularly minority groups of individuals and give them a space in our current political context.
With degrees in painting and photography, Esquives’s work includes mixed media, installations and performances. She has also focused on textile arts with her two grandmothers in Peru and is working in costume creation for Broadway shows in New York.
