Rhythms (2013), a series by the young Chilean artist, will be part of the exhibition that opens on June 4 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in the United States.
This will be the fourth version of the biannual program organized by the NMWA. This time, the exhibition focuses on the topic of nature and its connection with femaleness.
In this context, Rhythms (2013) by Chilean artist Andrea Lira was selected by the curator of the Washington DC Museum for inclusion in the exhibition. Her piece is a study on the transformation of plants through the artist’s manipulations and corporality. “Comprising four actions based on simple gestures, the video series provides intimate and unusual experiences of movement and change that develop in connection with spatial and human capabilities”, points out Soledad García, Chilean curator who preselected five pieces by Chilean artists.
Andrea Lira works internationally as an animation director and artist. Her work addresses our relationship with nature, time, and our bodies through video and drawings.
“My work explores the morphology of plants, while psychology traces the narratives living within them. Nature is not just a topic; it is a need for balance in everyday life. This is the source of my interest in botanical drawing, field explorations, and the manipulation of live elements”, explains the artist on her website: http://motionlira.com/
Andrea’s work has been exhibited in the International Museum of Women, Local Projects (New York), the Institut Für Alles Mögliche (Berlin), Sala Cero (Santiago), and other Brooklyn galleries. Her audiovisual shorts have been shown on the Nicktoons Network, Plum TV, Current TV, Via-X TV, and Chinese TV. They have also been included in the New York Animation Festival and the London, Vienna, Savannah, Istanbul, and Beijing Film Festivals. Andrea holds an MA in Fine Arts in Design and Technology from the Parsons New School for Design and a Bachelor’s degree in animation from the Savannah College of Art and Design, USA.
