ARTISTIC RESEARCH RESIDENCES
Conceptual artist and cultural researcher. She holds a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, where she also obtained her Master's degree in Contemporary Art. She won the Sharjah Biennial Award in 2015 with her WAM (World Agriculture Museum) project. Her work comes from a perspective strongly influenced by Anthropology, Sociology and Cultural Studies. The main focus of her research is contemporary peasantry. Her understanding of small and medium farmer is not just that of a food producer but also that of a cultural agent and knowledge producer. She has produced work that meditates on land use, nomadic architecture, peasant strikes, bureaucracy over the territory, the transformation of rural work, biotechnology and international food trade.
