Patricia Camet is a Peruvian artist born in New York in 1962. She holds a Master’s Degree in Art from the School of Design in Rhode Island. She lives and works in Lima.
Patricia Camet’s work consistently reflects on the problems caused by our patterns of excessive consumption, our impact on the environment, and our new forms of communication. She becomes an archaeologist of the present, producing iconic objects from our material culture of instant gratification. By sanctifying everyday objects and landscapes familiar to her, she poetically reveals the challenges of our accelerated lives and the consequences that we don’t take the time to understand. Playful and tender, the works of Patricia Camet should also be understood as an educational project of universal scope.
