Vanessa Freitag

León, MX


Brazilian, b. 1982   —   Born in Santa Rosa/RS/Brazil. Living in Mexico since 2008. Based in León Guanajuato. I am an artist and professor with an academic background in Brazil and Mexico. Since 2012, I work at the University of Guanajuato/Campus León, developing artistic research with the textile language. I got my Master's degree in Art Education from the University of Santa Maria/Brazil and my Ph.D. in Social Science from CIESAS-Occidente/Guadalajara/Mexico. I have participated in collective and solo exhibitions in Brazil, Mexico, and United States, collaborating also in group exhibitions in Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Romania, Puerto Rico, Ukraine, and United States. I define myself as a textile sculpture artist who uses various textiles techniques - sewing, crochet, embroidery, and weaving - and recycled materials to build organic shapes that are often imaginary and undefined. My work alludes to flora and fauna from my upbringing in Brazil as well as, from my surroundings in Mexico.
