Victoria Nunez

Country: Mexico
Themes explored: Identity, memory, territory, the body

Biography

The work of Victoria is characterized by being a display of painting and drawing, employing colors, lines, and geometric shapes, as well as materials that typically conceptualize long-term investigations into the body, identity, territory, and memory. It transforms into what she considers a “scientific-affective” long-term performance, illuminated by archaeology, history, architecture, and auto-ethnography. Her work oscillates between utopia and nostalgia, tenderness and the marginal, fragility, and violence.

Bocetos Maqueta

The Bocetos Maqueta series was created based on an idea of utopian housing, considering these drawings as architectural plans for spaces impossible to build. The color, shapes, and textures desired by the artist are inspired by a possible anti-architecture of the city of Mexico, that is, in the exploration and appropriation of public space.

CANICHES

A series created in collaboration with the magazine CANICHE based on the artist’s intervention of a comic strip template.

Inside Snakes

A series of drawings representing the myth of a skinned snake’s body and the analogy with human guts and fears.

Horizonessupermateriales

A pictorial investigation into the forms and colors of materials found in Mexico City.

Victoria graduated in Fine Arts from ENPEG “La Esmeralda” in 2011, and later obtained a Master’s in Art Production (MaPa) from the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos and the National Council for Science and Technology (2016-2018). She has exhibited her work in national and international museums, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, Carillo Gil Art Museum, Casa del Lago Museum, among others. She has also participated in fairs such as Material Art Fair, the Guadalajara International Book Fair, and within the SITAC XIII program.
