Mercedes Pimiento (1990, Seville) has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Seville and the Winchester School of Arts, and a Master’s Degree in Artistic Production and Research from the University of Barcelona, where she is currently studying for a PhD. Her work focuses on investigating the way we relate to the spaces we inhabit, paying special attention to the construction and manufacturing processes through which we define our material environment. Architecture, urbanism or landscape often appear as the main theme or starting point, understood as the result and containers of a series of social, economic and cultural processes. Her projects are usually linked to specific places, and through different media —such as sculpture, installation, video or photography— they pose a series of essays or records of the composition and material history that constitutes them. She has participated in individual and collective exhibitions in art centers such as the Center d’Art Tecla Sala (L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona), Fundación Arranz-Bravo (L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona), Andalusian Center for Contemporary Art (Seville), C3A (Córdoba), Fabra i Coats (Barcelona), or MAC (A Coruña), and galleries such as Alarcón Criado (Seville), Joan Prats (Barcelona) or Javier Silva (Valladolid). She has obtained scholarships from institutions such as Art for Change La Caixa, INJUVE, Fundación Guasch Coranty or the Iniciarte Program. She is co-founder and co-coordinator of FASE, a space linked to contemporary artistic practices located in l’Hospitalet de Llobregat.
