Bio

María José is an Uruguayan artist, currently based in Barcelona. She was always curious to understand how the world works. That coming and going of people and objects, with different links and meanings, moved by the issues that she wants to know. She studies economics with the intention of getting some clues about these matters, in fact, she had the illusion of a complete understanding. She was immersed, then, in a sort of abstraction around social behavior. That intuitive, analytical, illustrative background. This exercise of imagining rules that create a contrived world with which you can play -because you can not play with the world as it is- starts a dialog with the plasticity and possibilities of the different explored languages. Over time she has found that the illusion of understanding the world gives way to the illusion of creating her own worlds, realities or unrealities that she does not intend to understand.
