Fernando Bryce: CENTRO FUNDACION TELEFONICA/MUSEO DE ARTE DE LIMA


Quiles, Daniel, Artforum International


Fernando Bryce's Vision de la pintura occidental (Vision of Western Painting), 2002, consists of thirty-nine offset reproductions of canonical Western paintings hung salon style, surrounded by two additional walls of primed copies of ninety-six ink drawings aligned in double rows. The offset reproductions are original objects from the Museo de Reproduction Pictot leas in Lima, Peru, which was initiated by the city's t Universidad National Mayor de San Marcos in 1951 and closed in 1997.

After studying in Paris in the late 1980s and then living in Berlin, Bryce returned to Lima in 1999 and developed the prolific drawing practice he terms antaisis mintetico (mimetic analysis): the copying of images or entire documents from archives so that they can he considered as groups. …
