Amanda Gutiérrez (MX)
Amanda Gutiérrez (MX, *1978) is a Chicago-based artist from Mexico who focuses on the concepts of memory, home and urban landscapes in the context of the social, political and personal effects of migratory displacement. Her narrative techniques shift between formal strategies of documentation, oral recreation and fictional elements. She uses photography, video and sound to create an ambiguous assemblage of remembered stories. Gutiérrez already was part of several stipend programmes worldwide like the FONCA programme at the Banff Centre of the Arts in Alberta (CA) in 2009, the Taipei Artist Village in Taipei (TW) in 2009 and the Centre for Art and Media Karlsruhe (DE) in 2002. She presented her artwork in several venues such as The Windor Gallery in Madrid, Spain, Askeaton Contemporary Arts in Ireland, The Silver Cloud Gallery in London, UK, One Year Gallery in Taipei, Taiwan, and Khiasma Space in Paris, France, among others.

The project Time Topographies: Liverpool is a site-specific video triptych which portrays the story of three immigrants of different nationality, age and gender living and working in Liverpool. The images are compiled mainly by landscapes of the city. The voice-over is composed by a screenplay based on the oral stories, portraying their journey to the new nation. The project aims to embed their memory in relationship with space, using the landscape as the reconstruction of identity. The first triptych was already produced in Mexico City and Chicago and has been exhibited at Khiasma Space in Paris, Ex Teresa Arte Actual in Mexico City and Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City.
