About the Artist

My artistic research and work engage extensively with collective memory and its erasure in society.

The works are often based on the interpretation of specific events in relation to the city, architecture and historical representation in relation to the present, searching for new meanings to forgotten aspects of a conflictive lexicon in whose internal movement the writing of history is disputed.

My interest is to create installations and multimedia works that emerge from a deep research into cultural dynamics, that takes Brazilian architecture and its practitioners as central figures of my research.

Important architectonic icons like Casa França Brasil, The Gustavo Capanema Palace also known architecturally as the Ministry of Education and Health Building or the figures as Athos Bulcão, Lina Bo Bardi, and Lota de Macedo Soares or Carmen Miranda are many times the starting point to develop my research.

Mi investigación artística y obra están involucrados extensivamente  con la memoria colectiva su borramiento en la sociedad.

Las obras a menudo están basadas en la interpretación de eventos específicos en relación a la ciudad, la arquitectura y la representación histórica en relación al presente, buscando nuevos significados para los aspectos olvidados de un léxico conflictivo, en cuyo movimiento interno la escritura de la historia está en disputa.

Mi interés es el de crear instalaciones y obras multimedia que surgen de una investigación profunda sobre las dinámicas culturales, que toman a la arquitectura brasileña y sus practicantes como figuras centrales de mi investigación.

Importantes  iconos arquitectónicos como  Casa França Brazil, El Gustavo Capanema Palace también conocido arquitectónicamente como el  edificio del Ministerio de Educación y Salud; o las figuras como Athos Bulcão, Lina Bo Bardi, y Lota de Macedo Soares, or Carmen Miranda, son muchas veces los puntos de partida  para desarrollar mi investigación.

January 10, 2017 Impact Structures: Elena Damiani https://abstractioninaction.com/happenings/impact-structures-elena-damiani/


Artist: Elena Damiani 

Impact Structures
August 18, 2016 – September 24, 2016
Galerie Nordenhake Stockholm
Stockholm, Sweden

Working with collage, sculpture, video and installations Peruvian artist Elena Damiani employs the disciplines of geology, geography, cartography, archaeology and astronomy to reinterpret such categorisations and the way we understand the world around us. Her fictional and constructed landscapes propose alternative readings of geological time, history and humankind’s classifications of evidence. For her first exhibition at Galerie Nordenhake Damiani uses sources such as NASA, the Lunar and Planetary Institute and the U.S. Geological Survey repository to present a framework of quasi-evidence on celestial bodies like meteorites and comets and their landfalls. The works in the exhibition comprise documentation of traces of surface impacts, celestial transits, and cosmic debris left by impact events. Scientific evidence merges with fiction revealing how technology informs our representations of nature, and examining what we actually know about the natural world and how that knowledge is produced.
