RESIDENCIES

Bien

29.11.2016 to 02.12.2016



Cynthia is an Argentine-Canadian visual artist fascinated by storytelling and the human mind. She uses both journalism and art to explore the subjects that call her. She has been a political journalist and created installations that explored the political connotations and histories attached to everyday objects. Her current passion is mental health and illness, what it feels like when the brain plays against it's owner. 

During her ACE microresidency she worked on the fading and lack of permanence that characterises senile dementia through a photolithographic series, "Bien".
