María José Mir

MARIA JOSE MIR

Santiago de Chile

Her work always touches on what is tangible and the qualities of the materials that dress it. She collects them and gives them new meaning.

She doesn’t think much about beauty when she works, because what interests her most are other qualities, such as abstract ones. The time, weight, balance, rhythm. If it is growing or shrinking, it goes up or down, whether it is folded or not. Every detail matters.

In the end, the work is basically about her perceptions of personal experiences, which translates into works based on the material nature of her research.
