Somos Constructos – Beatrice Simoncini Amado
June 18 - July 30
Beatrice Simoncini Amado is a Fine Art student in Universidad de Barcelona (University of Barcelona).
Her artistic practice explores concepts such as identity, multiplicity and interrelations to offer ways to make presence of the ties (visible and imperceptible) which bind us (forever and always). These themes are formalized mainly through painting, which ideas which do not search for a particular aesthetic but for the opportunity to delve into and learn about how external presences have influence on the creative process – being able, in this way, to detect and analyze the effects of hyper-productivity and social vulnerability have on our way to relate to working times and pieces, and adopt a critical posture towards one’s own existence.
“Somos Constructos (We are Constructs) is a project born from my research on ways to engage with language and materials used in artistic practice.”
What has been learned, and what has been felt, for a long time gathers in an installation that combines organic elements and procedures with man-made and bought materials. In this space, the audience is encouraged to do micro and macro-political readings of each of the elements that make it a space where, helped by theoretical and textual resources, an analogous relationship between identity and the work in its entirety is established.
Somos Constructos can be understood as a changing and mutable way of interpreting one’s own relationship with their environment, other people, workplace/daily life rhythms and elements employed in artistic practice. Pieces operate from conception as outwardly facing works that occupy physical and mental space, expand meanings and push towards recognition of a world that exists outside the frame of the exposition. They allude to the sensory universe we make up, to the connecting ties of our environment and interiority which are a part of the articulations of a (our) shared world.
