Intro
How could we take a pause and stare at The Andes from anywhere in Latina America or any other corner in the world? This collection invites you to look at it through Pre-Columbian Andean textiles techniques, whose highly durable technology transported the information with ease through a rich language, which usually speaks of cycles, nature and abundance.

Artist list

Pilar Naranjo
When I look at The Andean Mountains Range after it rains I take a pause, a moment of tranquillity and awe in the middle of the whirlwind. Sometimes I forget its presence because it is always there, but in a clear day after it rains one remembers again, it moves us again; time stops for an instant.
What captivated me about Los Andes Mountains Range when dwelling on its beauty was to discover that it means transcendence, ties, reciprocity, and union. This is precisely what Andean textiles radiate, they did not see frontiers, they trespassed the physical and temporal space to communicate to us how they lived in Los Andes in past times, unifying the territory and reaching towards us today.
