Hi! My name is Julia Orquera Bianco, I’m an Argentinian visual artist living and working in L.A.
My art practice is a constant negotiation between collective and family heritage, time and space. Migration is a fundamental part of my lineage and family, and it is what informs my work. I interrogate the migrant experience from my everyday-ness, and a sense of identity that presents as fragile, always under construction, influenced by the past but re-contextualized and impacted by the present and the place.
I fell into the realms of performance art in something called Grad School. While it is true that I have been looking at and making art for quite a while, my knowledge of and experience in performance art – I will say, needs a lot of work. I am interested in it and intrigued by it, since it is through the body that we experience the world.
Recently, I’ve been accepted in ZERO GRAVITY INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WORKSHOP, as part of its International Performance art Festival. This will take place May 10th – May 19th, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. More information about this Workshop and Festival can be found here
. Participants in the workshop will perform in the opening night of the Festival, in May 16th.
I am asking for your support to cover all expenses generated from this experience. Every donation to this cause will be rewarded with a LIMITED EDITION object that I will deliver between August 2019 and January 2020. I will try to honor your support with an item that reflects your contribution. This way, you are not only helping me in my education and career, but you will be acquiring an art piece.
It takes a village. I hope you’ll be part of mine .
All the love and gratitude,
Julia O. Bianco
