Fuerza Oculta

HD Video - 2016 - 07:18 min Courtesy Galería Agustina Ferreyra Inspired by consumer goods, industrial debris and autobiographical narratives and objects, Cristina Tufiño (Puerto Rico, 1982) addresses her practice as an archeologist hoarder rummaging through a broad cultural system of references, with a particular nod to artifacts and museological aesthetics. Her multimedia works arise from a process of assembling, associating and translating images and ideas inspired by seemingly oppositional languages and spaces. Tufiño's photographic compositions, prints, videos, installations and sculptures, give a new meaning to post-studio practices and the use of social debris in our time. Recent exhibitions of Cristina Tufiño's works include "Utopia is like the Horizon", Hidrante, San Juan; "He Put a Hot Fish in her Navel", Embejada, San Juan; "Since I Must Leave My Home", Area: Lugar de Proyectos, Caguas. In 2015, Tufiño was mentioned as an Artist to Watch by Modern Painters magazine.
