NATALIA URNÍA

Chile 1985

My visual work is characterized by establishing a reflexive relationship between everyday textile objects, time and space. Detailed observation of the object, that is, the material from which it is made, the fibers and the technique with which it was constructed, and the object itself – these are the principal guides that I analyze to create my works.

Detailed investigation of the principal characteristics that I find in an object allows me to manipulate it, so that later it generates a point of strangeness that will capture the viewer. For most this is no different than what one already knows, neither in technical terms nor materials, but equally it will feel that it is changing the look of something that one thought they knew.

Throughout my career I have specialized in learning different textiles techniques with the intent of translating this knowledge and technical details to contemporary art issues, to give these made by hand actions a new feeling.
