Monika Bravo

Monika Bravo examines the notion of perception by questioning whether the world we live in, is but a mental construction; her artistic practice is used as a tool to decipher the laws that govern the world we live in. With this inquiry, she creates objects by incorporating still, moving images, sound and interactivity to generate situations where she can materialize and communicate her emotional state. Bravo wants to challenge the audience’s own perception of what they consider real by generating a platform where they are induced to connect by exploring, interacting and at times by focusing on an object-place-scene for a duration of time in a manner that is both meditative and investigative. Her work has been shown at Sternesen Museum, Oslo, Museo de Arte, Banco de la Republica, Bogota, Colombia, Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul, Seoul International Biennial of New Media Art, SITE Santa Fe; Centro de Arte Contemporaneo Caja CAB de Burgos, Spain, El Museo del Barrio, and New Museum in NY. Her videos have been screened at MOMA, Anthology Film Archives, Brooklyn Museum, New Museum of Contemporary Art, The Kitchen, Museo di Arte Contemporaneo di Roma, the New York video festival at the Lincoln Center & the Americas Society in NY, L.A MOCA, Tate Britain, Museo Reina Sofia.
