Intro
Virginia's project is an invitation to recognize and value our unique individuality in its various appearances.

Artist list

Virginia Escobar
Virginia’s project is about physical identity. She is interested in the meanings of uniqueness and individuality. Today, when cultural identity plays an important role in all its diversity, it's surprising to see how homogenized the ideal appearance is. New and accessible technologies enable us to construct our body, following social standards that establish the ideas of beauty and perfection.
The pieces presented in this exhibition are made with a self-created material developed over her investigation. To construct the pieces, she utilizes chiselling jewellery techniques combined with thread, staples, steel wire and stainless steel.


About the artist:

Her previous work has been exhibited in her country, and she has also participated in international exhibitions as Joya Barcelona, LOOT- MAD Museum NYC,
