“All of Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza’s work, whatever her chosen means of expression (symbolical, narrative, indexical or simply evocative) or media (photography, video, installations, texts, performances), bears witness to the same highly coherent approach, as if each individual piece was one fragment of a global work of which we can only see the beginnings, the tip of the iceberg. Her work deals with visibility and absence, history and memory, displacement and territory, but always with simplicity and economy of means.”

The Franco-Ecuadorian artist Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza came to the CPIF as part of a postproduction residency to finalise her series un air d’accueil. Marc Lenot, an art critic and blogger, chose to present her work for his participation in the AICA France Art Criticism Prize (which he was awarded by an international jury from the International Art Critics Association in March 2014). The prize led to a book, whose publication was funded by AICA France, and the organisation of this exhibition. Fragments liminaires, without being a retrospective of this young artist’s work, brings together a certain number of her older pieces, which put into perspective her recent series un air d’accueil.
