Lost Identity: Juan Pablo Echeverri’s 22-Year Ritual of Self-Portraiture

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

A new exhibition at the Wolfgang Tillman-founded Between Bridges commemorates the life and work of Bogotá-born artist Juan Pablo Echeverri whose prolific oeuvre can be read as an exercise of continual re-invention by means of the self-portrait. Translating to “Lost Identity,” the exhibition’s title Identidad Perdida is lifted from a handwritten note taped to the wall in Echeverri’s studio and resonates to his practice of defying a flattened, static, and essentialist reading of identity in order to joyfully celebrate a simultaneity of embodiments.
