María Fernanda Plata

1978, Bogotá

María Fernanda Plata’s longstanding interest in the concept of time in relation to architecture, gives way to the creation of mixed-media drawings often representing building facades that bring into play the notions of construction, destruction, presence and absence. Although Plata’s work questions the relationships that human beings establish with built and inhabited spaces which are later remodeled, destroyed and rebuilt, it does not seek to solely reflect on architecture; instead it calls into question architecture’s vulnerability while questioning what happens when a space stops being familiar and habitable.
