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).

Zonas Reflejas
25.10.2018

For the work of art to be a transforming agent, the ability of analysis and interpretation has to exist. In this exhibition, Mónica Giron formalizes the different methodologies she applies to refine perception and acquire knowledge both in her life and in her work production as well as in her practice in the artist formation area.
