An artistic duo called Guerro De La Paz communicate about the consume-and-discard nature of our mass-produced lifestyles through their art and artist statements. 

“Our habits of consumption put us so very far away from the creation of the items we use– and just as far away from the piles of trash they become.  Guerra De La Paz doesn’t see trash, in this sense, but an opportunity for artistic beauty and expression.”

-from an interview with Guerra de la Paz given by Louise Kissa on June 4, 2011

guerra de la paz used clothes to create tribute
Guerra de la Paz used clothes to create Tribute

“Tribute’s evolution, on the other hand, is a stark contrast, in that it is made entirely of cast-offs that it has taken over ten years to collect, and to sort the clothing to correlate with the colours of the spectrum. The individual items were gathered from piles of discarded garments waiting to be taken away in dumpsters for landfill.”

final thoughts from guerra de la paz
Final Thoughts from Guerra de la Paz

We feel it is of the utmost importance to have respect for the earth and to protect all that nature provides to make life possible. In this day and age, it seems as though our time on the planet may be running out unless we re-evaluate our priorities as a society, and find a balance where civilization can continue moving forward, or pay the consequences for going too far. Our work comments on both mass production and consumption just by the fact that our material of choice is what it is. It exposes the waste that is generated with the bountiful amounts of apparel we use (which doesn’t even scratch the surface of what is hauled away on a daily basis), and can serve as an example of how we can turn our trash into something meaningful, or a thing of beauty.”
