Fidel Eljuri is an audiovisual artist living and working in Quito, Ecuador. He creates immersive experiences that explore the relationship between the cosmology of man and the natural environment over time. In his A/V show Digital Ceremony, Fidel explores the fractality of Shipibo artwork and their relationship with the geometry of nature and ayahuasca ritual patterns alongside a singer of ceremonial songs (icaros). The work was created on site with the Shipobo community of Peru using field recordings, ceremonial songs, fabrics and images of nature under miscroscopes. The visuals are generated in real time alongside the icaro chants.
Although he experiments with multiple formats, Fidel primarily focuses on moving images, large-scale installations, and live audiovisual pieces. His award winning projects have been presented at various exhibitions and festivals throughout Latin America, including the Cuenca Biennale, Cromía, VFFF (all Ecuador), Premio Brasil (Brazil), Selvámonos (Perú), Estereo Picnic (Colombia). Fidel is also a highly regarded music selector and creator of live visuals in collaboration with musical projects. As a VJ he has performed alongside Nicola Cruz at Sonar in Barcelona. In addition to his performance and art installations, Fidel has guest lectured and lead workshops at different universities and cultural centers, including Espacio Fundación Telefónica (Peru) and the Vértice biennale (Ecuador).
In summer 2017 he plans to do a European tour showcasing his works.
