Maria Jose Arjona

“Her body of work is divided in two: Single pieces (site specific) and performance cycles which operate in synchronicity within the chronological timeline. The performance cycles, composed by a series of works, are created by the artist as “research spaces” in order to understand the meaning of specific concepts and their effects on the body. Both, concepts and effects, within the frame of an almost scientific method, unfold into different dynamics where the presence of the artist must function outside the boundaries of identity. Arjona’s work does not respond or denounces specific events; the performances their selves, are transformed into questions or bridges uniting distant points of diverse conversations. The artist’s objective then, is to become a connecting entity, operating as medium of visual communication and energy exchange.”
