Paula Anguita

Paula Anguita was born in Santiago de Chile in 1978

My artistic research is focused on the analysis of the relationship between reality and illusion, understood as dynamic perceptual categories in permanent tension. My work seeks to question the limit between both dimensions, through the construction of visual experiences that test the integrity of the perceived image, generating a certain “perceptual dislocation”, integrating the spectator as an active part of the visual experience.

This purpose is achieved by the use of different formats and media, whose main feature is determined by the use of elements that distort the linear and direct relationship between perceived-object and observer-subject, opening an expanded perceptual field which questions the limits between reality and virtuality, the visible and the occult.
