BIO

 

I was born in Santiago of Chile, 1974.

Since 2011 I live and work in Barcelona. I studied literature, law and art in Chile (Master in Visual Arts), and philosophy in Spain (Doctor in Philosophy). Currently I hold a Postdoctoral Researcher position at CfAR Centre for Artistic Research, University of the Arts Helsinki (2019-2020). I'm also Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Barcelona. 

 

My praxis as an artistphilosopher and pedagogue inhabits a zone of visual encounters between actions, writings and thinking. Among the concepts framing my artistic research is possible to determine three notions: the un-domiciled, the anarkhistory and the inexistent.

During 2018-2019, I worked as a teacher at Espai Aigua, a school and pedagogical project based on free and active education, respecting the child's integral and evolutive development. I am a Professor at the Master program of Artistic Research in Art and Design at EINA, University Centre of Art and Design, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, and Tutor at Metáfora Art Studio Program.

In 2020 I will be Resident Fellow in the Academy of Fine Arts, Uniarts Helsinki, Finland (Saastamoinen Foundation). During 2016-2017 I was a researcher artist in residency at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge, Barcelona, and I was an artist in research at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía de Madrid, 2015-2016.

 

My work has been exhibited at Fabra i Coats Centre d'Art Contemporani, Barcelona; Museo de Reus, Reus, Spain; Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, Germany; Fundació Antoni Tapies, Barcelona, Spain; Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende, Santiago de Chile; Goethe-Institut de Barcelona, Spain; Centro de Arte Lo Pati, Amposta, Spain; La Capella, Barcelona, Spain; Kunsthall 3,14, Bergen, Norway; Aratoi Museum of Art and History, Masterton, New Zealand; Fonderie Darling, Montréal, Canada; Charlotte Fogh Contemporary, Aarhus, Denmark; Alice Day gallery, Brussels, Belgic; Galería Casa Sin Fin, Madrid, Spain; Root Division, San Francisco, USA; Litteraturhuset (VOLT), Bergen, Norway; Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende, Santiago de Chile; Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, among others.

Mi praxis como artistafilósofo y docente se establece en una zona de encuentros visuales entre acciones, escritura y  pensamiento.

Entre los elementos conceptuales que enmarcan mis investigaciones es posible determinar tres nociones:

i.- la indomiciliación,

la cual hace referencia a una condición de desplazamiento e inestabilidad;

ii.- la anarchistoria, que referencia a las estrategias de

historización desmodelizadas

de los marcos de inteligibilidad económicos, sociales y políticos hegemónicos;

iii.- la inexistencia, que hace referencia a la condición de intensidad de aquellos cuerpos que se exponen inusitadamente más allá de las discursividades de control y desarrollo hegemónicos.
