LUNA PAIVA


BORN PARIS, 1980


A SCULPTOR, PHOTOGRAPHER AND DESIGNER BASED IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, Paiva gilds objects that were not born to be art, but had a nude life of their own. Her subjects—mounted rocks, succulent plants and cacti—are AT ONCE familiar and ALIEN, LIKE species from UNKNOWN realms. Like us, they are inhabitants of creation shaped by time. Playing with the the sacred layers of fetish present in contemporary art, her objects speak of life that preexisted the human eye, and of ancient traditions where casting gold embodied a sacred anima. In Paiva’s words, her sculptures are “Ready-mades of nature gilded for profane adoration”


BORN IN PARIS, PAIVA STUDIED Art History and Archeology A La Sorbonne and FILM AT NYU. her work IS IN THE PERMANENT COLLECTION OF THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART BUENOS AIRES AND has been shown in exhibitions in Latin America, Europe and the United States
