Ana Alenso builds an allegorical cosmos showcasing the economic, social and ecological risks and the imbalance implicit in natural resource extractive practices. Her work departs from the assumption that within the fragile state of geopolitics and the vulnerabilities of financial markets, artistic practices become modulators of a widespread sense of uncertainty. Instead of rejecting this uncertainty, she identifies with it and embraces it as a vehicle for prototyping and experimentation.
She holds an MFA in Art in Context at the Berlin University of Arts (2015), an MFA in Media Art & Design at the Bauhaus University Weimar (2012) and a Diplom an der Armando Reverón Arts University in Venezuela (2004). In 2017, she received the artistic research grant from the Senate of Culture and Europe in Berlin. Her work has been exhibited in different spaces and institutions in Latin America and Europe.
