CATALINA CORREA MOLLER
Born in Santiago, Chile, 1984

STATEMENT

I work from the direct experience with the place, decentralizing the cultural structures to feed new aesthetic experiences at local level and, at the same time, to open outwards the multiple dimensions of Patagonia as a creative platform. I want to develop sustainable social networks for information interchange between different uses and points of view about landscape, thus motivating exchanges between science and art, tradition and contemporaneity, praxis and poetics.

The artist and his/her interaction with other individuals through technical shared procedures are part of the work and the research about territory perception. Having a notable process orientation, the projects are based on collecting, filing and assembling formats and sources, organized in the same level to offer a fragmentary and unfinished reading which reanalyzes the official narrations from a socio-cultural context where all meaning constructions are mediated by the State.

Operating from a cultural and physical isolated territory, I believe that it is necessary to develop a collaborative local work and simultaneously develop interaction strategies between the center and the outskirts.
