Mariona Moncunill *Artist 10-11
The creation of symbolic value and its management, the construction of discourse and the conventions that weave the complex web in which the visual arts and culture develop, are the starting point of my work. Their analysis allows me to extrapolate the construction of meaning and value creation to other areas of discourse: from the exhibition space and the relationship with the viewer to journalistic infographics through the social work of a bank, sociological statistics or the knowledge management of a library.
My projects are mostly interventions that show characteristics of the context in which they are inserted in order to discuss, analyze and propose a critical look at them. My work process place special emphasis on three phases: theoretical research, the field work and the management and activation of human, material and symbolic resources.
The processes of negotiation and dialogue with all stakeholders are also an essential part of my work. The game between reality and fiction, mimicry, infiltration, speculation, ambiguity and specificity are some of the distinctive features of my work which is often formalized in an aniconic and camouflaged manner.
