Mónica Giron


Mónica Giron (San Carlos de Bariloche, 1959). The experience of witnessing the stunning Patagonian horizon –whose human and geopolitical contexts are being rapidly transformed– is at the very heart of the artist’s work. Through her presentation of the landscape and the world as a field of metaphors from which to pose unexpected questions of a sensitive, open, ethical and moral nature, Giron creates a body of work and actions that she unfurls in her exhibitions and seminars. She anxiously observes the landscape, architecture or art, mindful of the ability of forms –and consequently of humans– to concentrate or misuse information, energy, knowledge and the power of expression. Repeatedly her work is expressed in installations, objects and analyses of forms, drawings, watercolours and site-specific projects. She currently lives in the city of Buenos Aires. 
Her most recent individual exhibitions are Ejercicios con el modelo terrestre (Centro Cultural Recoleta, 2015), Fronterizo y Traslación, (Galería Zabaleta Lab, 2013) and Neocriollo (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, 2007).

Los días

12.06.2018 [...] There is a phenomenon that science still has not been able to explain called crown shyness. Certain species of trees’ branches grow close but never graze each other. As if they could communicate, each tree establishes the margins of its own space, its own territory. Verónica Flom for Los días.
