Perla Montelongo (México 1980)
Visual artist, her work focuses mainly on issues such as representation systems of material and ideal objects, questioning the value of objects at levels of image, matter, use and idea. She has also a special interest on the study of time perception in literature and audiovisual works.
Normally her production is not tied to a specific media, since the concept of the “work” defines the media that works better for representating/reproducing the idea. Normally her work is produced with diverse media like video, digital image, audio, installation and site specific projects.
Its professional experience is also developed in the curatorial field, gallery management and as teacher/investigator in the visual arts area. At the moment she works in the department of investigation of Media Centre d’Art i Disseny, Barcelona.
