Mariana Murcia

Her practice is guided by an interdisciplinary approach, working on the unstable border betweenartistic production and art education. Situated on this border and assuming a performativeposition, her work and research explores ways in which language emerges through matterand physical senses. In particular, embodying instances in relation to the environment, in orderto speculate on the origin of the technologies we create and use to communicate. Floating indifferent water sources has become a habit that opens a language to describe a place thatemerges from the superposition of at least two geographical layers, his own and the one heinhabits, producing a critical approach to material and abstract knowledge. His work aspires tobe critical and coherent with its immediate context, through different media such as video andsculpture, cultural platforms and ephemeral schools. Since 2010 she works in collaboration withLaagencia, a diasporic office for art projects. In 2021 she received a Master of Arts degree fromthe Institut Kunst FHNW in Basel.
