(Peru, 2021) Art collective founded by Alipio Melo, Danitza Willka and María José Murillo. Rooted in the essence of Andean weaving, their purpose is to intertwine their worldviews and experiences as contemporary textile artists. Noqanchis, in Quechua, translates as 'we all.' It is an inclusive we (+), which differs from noqayku, or restrictive we (-). Unlike Western languages, Quechua retains the same root for 'I' [noqa] as for 'we' [noqanchis / noqayku], thus evidencing the inseparable link between the individual and the community in the construction of the Andean identity.
