Mariel Carranza

At eighteen years of age, Mariel Carranza came to the United States from Lima, Perú. Treating her body as material, Carranza works to detach from physical limitations. Her concerns with the transformation of living matter has led her to labor continuously on a number of art works as if tending to a living being. Surrendering to the course the materials take when left unfixed, her sculptural works challenge the notion of time limitations.
