Vicente Mollestad is a Bolivian-born artist based between La Paz, Bolivia and Skien, Norway. His artistic practice develops within and around the relationship between the west and the un-western, particularly how coloniality lives and sets the premise for the development of globalism, immigration and culture production.
Vicente works with various mediums, including installation, painting, sound, text and performance, and there is a continuous exploration of alternative spaces, audience and what he defines as practice.
Among recent projects is an investigation of the phenomena that was European cannibal films from the 70s-80s, and looking into how global immigration and world politics shaped and continues to shape the Norwegian rap scene.
