Mauro Giaconi

Birth placeBuenos Aires, Argentina Birth date1977

Mauro Giaconi was born in 1977 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Giaconi's work is developed in the field of sculpture, installation and mainly in drawing, which currently functions as the axis of all it's production and from which it starts to generate spatial interventions and images that go through the aesthetics of chaos and process research. Architecture, body, memory and environment are key elements in the artist's work, which focuses on proposing experiences that seek to be in tension between opposing concepts: construction and destruction; birth and death; confinement and freedom; depth and surface.

In 2001 he returned from the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón, Buenos Aires, Argentina, with the title of National Professor of Painting. He has received the first Philips Award for Young Talents, mention of the jury and mention of honor in the National Drawing Salon. In addition, he was selected for the First and Second ArteBA-Petrobrás Prizes, and was a fellow during 2010 of the Center for Artistic Research (CIA). His work has been exhibited in renowned international spaces such as the Museum of the Palace of Fine Arts and the Carrillo Gil Museum of Art in Mexico, the Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires, among others. In the field of art education, he taught in 2002 at the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón, and in 2011 he was a teacher at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos (Cuernavaca, Mexico).

His work is part of collections such as the SPACE Collection, USA; Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires, Argentina; Miami Art Museum, USA; among other. He currently lives and works in Mexico City.
