Interview with basqo bim (The Truth In This Art Beyond: New Orleans)

In this episode of The Truth In This Art Beyond: New Orleans, host Rob Lee interviews Basqo Bim. Basqo Bim is a Colombian-American multidisciplinary artist based in New Orleans with a focus on assemblage and sculpture. Their practice centers around the intentional antagonization of the tensions between their intertwining and conflicting needs, desires, paranoias, and nostalgias. Their intent is to explore their physical, mental, and psychological limitations in terms of the process of creation and manifestation of their work, and finding new ways to push past the existing boundaries into newer, unknown territories. Simultaneously, their practice revolves around fostering a meditative and healing form of art practice for themselves. Both of these opposing approaches work together to forge a space of internal dialectics in their practice and process, driven by a need to push every facet of their work to adverse extremes in each piece. Their desire is to offer new worlds to the viewer by reflecting their own tensions onto the viewer by utilizing a jarring shift from consensus reality, while also offering visual and psychological anchors rooted in familiar temporal and cultural reference points.
