Drawings, video and prints by Cristina Artola
A trigger-happy portrait of the peculiar autopoiesis of cultural evolution.
Humans are creators of their own world. Constructors of rituals and technology. Is the beauty of their creations condition for an aesthetic experience in art works? Or is art just a reflection of the ugliness of the struggel for survival, which we think to overcome with technological progress?
Are we good? Are we bad? And what does it mean, when it gets ugly?
Cristina Artola was born1975 in Bilbao (Spain). She studied Fine Arts in EHU (Bask Country University) and moved to Berlin in 1999 for Postgradual Studies at Udk Berlin.
