García Ibañez María


Madrid, España, 1978 Lives and works between Madrid and México. In my recent projects I tackle issues related to the analysis of identity, in relation to mobility, migration (physical and / or psychological) involving a review of the origin. The drawing is an essential part of my process, it is the basis that supports and complements the body of my work, cause it allows me to open discursive proposals and point at issues that concerns me and that somehow, more or less directly, are involved in my work; as the system of ground layers, stratigraphic formation of mountains and volcanoes, the historical distribution of human settlements, chronological classification of sedimentation, histology, sections of tissues or organs, anatomy and landscape. I like working from different perspectives and with different techniques depending on the project and although there are parts that can function as independent elements, and have a global installative orientation, that can be composes and adjusted to specific spaces to generate a reading of connections, more complete and broader.
