GALERÍA DEL INFINITO ANNOUNCES MATILDE MARÍN’S PARTICIPATION IN THE CUENCA BIENNIAL
Under the direction of Katya Cazar, in the 15th edition of the Cuenca Biennial, eleven women artists with a long history in contemporary art participate in this exhibition in times of pandemic (a necessary curatorial exercise that reflects on the closure of the tangible and intangible, the everyday and the symbolic). A bet on resistance and creation in complex present times.
Matilde Marín made Cotidiano (Daily) during the confinement in Buenos Aires, Argentina, specifically for the publication and virtual exhibition presented by the Cuenca Biennial.
Matilde Marín’s work (Buenos Aires, 1948) is characterized by the thoroughness with which it adopts various techniques in the elaboration, which include both photography and video, as well as engraving and installation. Matilde Marín’ s aesthetic ideas and projects always transcend the mere exercise of art and reached, through the years, dexterity and undisputed refinement in image processing. Her current production is focused on the role of the artist as a "witness", recording stories about the world we inhabit, as well as situations related to pure landscape and its natural or artificial alteration.
