Using unwanted garments as an unyielding source of material, the artist duo Guerra de la Paz creates a multitude of sculptures and installations. Guerra de la Paz is the collaborative efforts of Cuban artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz. The two artists met in 1996 and have since been creating work that references contemporary culture with the use of found objects. In recent works, Guerra de la Paz has investigated cycles of consumption by reinventing discarded cloths as room-sized landscapes. Alain Guerra attended the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, and Nedaldo de la Paz is a graduate of Northern Illinois University. In 2006, the artists exhibited “Oasis” at the Chicago Cultural Center and new works with Jack the Pelican Presents in Brooklyn, N.Y.
