Luciana Pinchiero uses sculpture, video and installation to explore the imbalance and uneasiness that come with all things, and to inquire into the apparent relationships between the universal and the particular. Her work is driven by the many possible meanings imbedded in language and systems of categorization, provoking subtle commentaries on the relationships between what is established by culture and what is experienced by the individual. With a bit of a sense of humor, a bit of hesitation, and a bit of control, Pinchiero’s work offers a path to the viewer in which each step is a trace of an unimaginable experience: the encounter with a seemingly familiar object and the ways of figuring out how it works in the world to which one is accustomed.
Born in Argentina, Pinchiero migrated to the US, where she lives and works, to finish her studies in art. Ever since, her relationship with her home country has been intrinsically challenged by distance. Her creative process operates through the reality of the immigrant who does not entirely leave behind the past, nor fully adopts the present. Her work has been shown in museums, art spaces and galleries in New York City, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, France and Iceland.
