About William Cordova

Having lived and worked between three different cities (New York, Miami, and his hometown of Lima, Peru), William Cordova creates artwork that deals with his real-life issues of transition and displacement. He investigates the differences in culture, language, and economics through his work: installations, drawings, and sculptures that combine discarded materials and ephemera—such as old shoes, tires, and books—to withdraw and reconsider their cultural and historical significance. Often site-specific, Cordova’s installations challenge preexisting histories of the places they occupy and present new perspectives on the fleeting significance of his subjects.
