Analía Segal will discuss her practice and present a selection of works produced during the last 20 years comprised in her recent bilingual book/object “el interior del interior”. The project attempts to plumb the intricacy and complexity of citizenship and dislocation.
“Since the beginning of my career, I have been using a variety of mediums to navigate the porous boundaries between art, design and architecture. As an Argentine, born and raised in Buenos Aires during the seventies, I grew up in a country isolated from the rest of the world for political reasons which prompted my family to peregrinate and live in several different countries in Europe. This experience has deeply influenced and built my own identity triggering the longing to explore the meaning of “home” in my work and the exchange that takes place during the process of inhabitation. The manipulation of the surfaces of industrial materials turn them into a living dermis, and these visceral interventions challenge the idea of home as a possible refuge.“
