Pilar Guinea is a Guatemalan artist living in Vancouver. In her work Guinea tries to understand and explain the concept of displacement throughout investigations of our modern world, questions about identity and feminism. Guinea's art is studied and incredibly intentional. Every detail is packed with meaning and carefully calculated. And yet, simultaneously, triviality also prevails. Guinea’s works can be cataloged from deliberate photo-sculptures of our three-dimensional world, all the way to simple "art-gestures" such as tattoos. In them, a feeling of dislocation is tied into the examination of different worlds; that of immigration, reality, and dreams.
