Fernanda Laguna

Bio

Fernanda Laguna (1972) is one of the most influential Argentine artists of her generation. In 2000 she founded Belleza y Felicidad, a project that was a watershed moment for local art. Since 2003 she has carried on a social practice in a marginalized community. She has shown extensively, published poetry and novels and created several art spaces. She is currently exhibiting at ICA, Richmond, VA. Her work is in the collections of Guggenheim Museum NY; LACMA; Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires, among others.

Statement

Her work is intersected by several themes: erotic desire expressed from a woman’s standpoint; the spontaneous and the irrational; appropriation of local popular handcrafts and iconography; an interest in precarious, everyday materials yet at the same time in classic vernacular modernist painterly traditions such as geometric abstraction or metaphysical painting; feminism; a concern about social inequalities, and above all, an immediacy of expression of her subjectivity.
