The Work Takes Control of Itself: A Conversation with Mariana Villafañe
by Marķa Carolina Baulo
Mariana Villafañe's work emerges from the study of geometric-morphological
patterns, a dialogue between mathematics, pure geometry, and
abstraction that gains focus from a sensorial point of view. Villafañe
tries to find visual means of representation for movement, as well as
the sounds and vibrations that it generates. A student of architecture
and visual arts, she attended seminars with outstanding artists, critics,
and international curators. Her works have been exhibited at contemporary
art fairs and shows in Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Miami, Lima, Santiago,
New York, Paris, and Berlin. In 2016, she had a solo exhibition, "Paisajes
Audibles" ("Audible Landscapes"), at the Recoleta Cultural Center in
Buenos Aires. Her work is represented by Galerie Mark Hachem in Paris.
