Milagros de la Torre, an exhibition guest curated by Dr. Edward J. Sullivan, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of the History of Art at the Institute of Fine Arts and the Department of Art History, New York University. The exhibition, March 6 to July 1, 2012, coincided with the Bienal de Fotografía de Lima, which opened on March 19 and will continued until July 22, 2012. Indicios: Milagros de la Torre is a collaborative project between MALI and Americas Society, which opened the concurrent exhibition Observed: Milagros de la Torre on February 8, in New York and will be on view until April 14, 2012. The exhibition features twelve series and over fifty works. Selecting photographic works from the 1990s to the present, Indicios will be the artist's first monographic show in Lima. Focused on stark, object-based images, the exhibition examines contemporary issues related to violence, memory, and the socio-political construction of identity.As Edward Sullivan has suggested, the notion of pain also plays a prevalent role throughout de la Torre's work. Never displayed in an active or aggressive manner, the physical or emotional trauma manifests itself through quiet allusion. Several of her series develop out of her own experiences in countries that have had waves of crippling violence, such as Mexico and Peru, or that have had extended periods of censorship. Research has served as a fundamental basis for her images, many of which are examinations of criminality and surveillance. The Lost Steps (1996) is a seminal project deeply informed by nineteenth-century photographic techniques. De la Torre employed these methods to focus on images of incriminating evidence taken from the archive of the Palace of Justice in Lima, Peru during the violent years of the Shining Path. The seemingly everyday objects, shown in an isolated manner, convey stories of acts of terrorism, passion, and other crimes. In Censored (2001) de la Torre depicts passages from seventeenth and eighteenth-century manuscripts from the collection of the University of Salamanca, inked-out by officials during the Spanish Inquisition. The series is made up of abstract images capturing the stroke and stain of each censored text. De la Torre's first series, Under the Black Sun (1991-1993) comprises portraits engaged with a subtle treatment of color. They were appropriated or reconfigured images from street photographers in Cusco in which the skin of the clients was lightened with Mercurochrome. Also included is the never before seen series It All Stays in the Family. An exploration into the concept of the family portrait, these photographs printed on vintage paper use an "unsynchronized" flash to produce an image that is covered in a shadow that increases from grey to deep black, thereby blurring the connective association between each relative. .
