(b. 1965, Lima, Peru) Lives and works in Berlin, Germany, and Lima
Bryce’s works in ink are characterized by their representation of a history of Peru (although not exclusively so, as he has worked on other histories in his new series) taken from original documents, in political, economic and cultural terms. He’ll often use straightforward line drawing as a tool to address the banality of historical images, documents, and texts. The following interview was done in Lima for the launch of his recent book "Atlas of Peru", which is a compilation of his work of the last five years. May of the new series of drawings featured here investigates the history of Pan-American relations during the Cold War.
Selected exhibitions include: Tapiés Foundation, Barcelona, 2005 (solo); 54th Carnegie International, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, 2005 (group); 26th Biennial of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 2004 (group); "Based on a True History", Artists Space, New York (group) and the 50th Biennial of Venice, Latin-American pavilion with Gilda Mantilla; "Poetic Justice / Siirsel Adalet", Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul, Turkey, curated by Dan Cameron in 2003.
