BIOGRAFIA MONICA BARROS:

Mónica Barros es una creadora que experimenta con diferentes medios expresivos. Su interés por la expresión corporal la ha llevado ha desarrollar un trabajo interdisciplinario que interrelaciona la danza, la poesía, el performance y las instalaciones en un contexto lúdico y primordial.
Barros ah desarrollado un lenguaje poético-desfragmentador con el cual produce un trabajo creativo que interrelaciona diversas disciplinas. Este lenguaje crudo y directo representa una realidad de producciones “Caseras” (cotidiano y familiar) con el cual elaborar objetos y registros aparentemente simples que representan un mundo visual impregnado por un carácter orgánico alternativo.
Sus “Crudas” experimentaciones recrean e inventan espacios segmentados y temporalidades descontextualizadas. Sus “Ejercicios Corporales” exploran lo desconocido por medio de un vocabulario de formas y símbolos que proponen la reconstrucción de un mundo informado por códigos artesanales y un imaginario fractalico.
Barros se titulo de Interprete y Traductora en la Universidad Católica de Chile. Desde 1995 experimenta e investiga diversas expresiones en danza moderna. Actualmente sus investigaciones la han llevado a incursionar en el video arte, video clips y performances via telepresencia.
