CUQUI JEREZ Las Ultracosas

This project, which circulates through choreography, the objectual, the scenographic, the pictorial, the visual and theory, aims to explore the limit of language through an aesthetic experience of contemplation. The artist has focused on researching strategies and logics that produce a suspension of meaning, in other worlds, finding the precise point at which the linguistic sign cannot be defined, but at the same time is not completely open. This has led her to work with ambiguity, insinuation, suggestion and play: the piece consists of a sort of living pictures that are put in motion, generating non-explicit narratives.

After working as a dancer and performer with different choreographers in Europe in the 1990s, Cuqui Jerez started to develop her own choreographic work in 2001. Since then, she has created pieces that have been performed at many festivals, theatres and museums in Europe, USA and Latin America. Her pieces do not necessarily align with the idea of a “choreography”, although Cuqui Jerez believes that choreographic creation draws from components of different disciplines: Since my early pieces, my work has been a tool for understanding the performative act. In the course of my career, I have worked with performances, dance pieces, theatrical pieces, videos, texts, photographs, objects, events and publications. Viewed under different lights, I consider all these activities to be choreographies. My approach to all my works is choreographic, so basically I think of myself as a choreographer.
