Alejandro Almanza Pereda

Alejandro Almanza Pereda was born in 1977 in Mexico City. Previously, he worked in New York, and currently lives and works between the United States and Mexico. Now its practice in both places.
Looking for vintage items. In flea markets and thrift stores. Almanza Pereda incorporates mundane materials into large-scale sculptures that challenge both the durability of the items and her ability to create a stable structure. His frequent use of neon tubes, for example. Is in part due to his interest in fragility. The simultaneous resistance of these objects which break easily but, in certain positions, can withstand significant pressures.
Inspired by the objects he selects, Almanza Pereda avoids narrative. He prefers to focus on materiality. Although his work is influenced by Dutch still life painting. Almanza can touch the surrealist. Particularly in more recent works which experiment with underwater photography.
