Ariamna Contino Cuba, b. 1984

Ariamna’s work is characterized by the advocacy of research processes as a background for her aesthetic proposals. By means of transdisciplinary exercises where collaboration is essential, she has appropriated experiences alien to the art sphere. In this respect, the thematic approaches of her art works are multiple and associated to the cultural scope. 


Paper, used as physical and conceptual support, has been a distinctive resource and layered structures are not only formal-aesthetic, but also symbolic. The paper sheets allude to layers of ideas, information or meanings. However Ariamna also explores and incorporates new materials – glass, concrete and wax, as starting points for aesthetic exploration and the connotations associated to them.
