Patricia Villalobos

VIRO

Patricia Villalobos Echeverría (USA/Nicaragua) was born in Tennessee, in the United States, in 1965 to Salvadoran parents, and grew up in Nicaragua. Not surprisingly her work concerns identity and transculturalism in an era of increasing globalisation. In her photographs, videos and installations Villalobos sets this theme against the background of personal texts, images, and the history of Nicaragua, with its countless conflicts and natural disasters. Her subject in 'Viro' (2002) is the systematic disappearance of individuals, for example through torture, as happened under the dictatorial regimes of Central and South America during the final decades of the last century. In this way Villalobos gives a voice to the countless victims who were dumped as worthless bodies in those days.
