Intro
Martacarmela was schooled as an architect in México city and later did a MAFA in CSM, London. She received the “Jovenes Creadores” art grant from the Mexican government. Her work has been showcased in different museums and Galleries in the USA, Europe, Argentina México. She was awarded the Mexican national price “Quorum” in 2012. She also works as a freelace designer for the Mexican silversmith brand TANE and teaches “conceptualizing design” in the University CENTRO in Mexico.

Statement

My work is about constructing objects. About building with materials but also about changing your perception about them.  You think you know the object or it’s meaning, but when deprived of its value, of the context and even of what is made of, then you look at it in a different way. Playing with wire, plastic, cloth, metals, etc. and different techniques I like to create and to build portable and wearable structures.
