JULIA MASVERNAT

Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1973

GACHI PRIETO

Julia Masvernat works with basic superimposed forms of lines and planes in which figure and background take on equal importance. Free of any reference, these abstract works are an invitation to the game of freely interpreting or inventing new meanings. From a playful encounter with materials, she constructs objects or draws maps or paths that are found in a hybrid place between the representational and the abstract, the artisanal and the industrial, the ephemeral and the durable, the analogical and the digital.
Among others, Masvenat has received the Petrobras-ArteBA Prize and the MAMBA Prize, LIMBø for art and new technologies. In 2013 she carried out a project in the residence Sala_Taller III, of the EAC (Espacio de Arte Contemporáneo), Montevideo, Uruguay. In 2016 she exhibited at MACBA (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires) and in 2018 she presented a site-specific installation at the Tour de la Lanterne, La Rochelle, France.
