Liliana Maresca

Buenos Aires, Argentina| 1951 - 1994



Liliana Maresca was a key figure who participated in the artistic scene since the early 80’s, starring the enthusiastic young bohemian that detonated Buenos Aires from the early years of democracy rapidly becoming an inflection figure, which initiates and develops many of the avant-garde that characterize the art of 90’s. Her body of works include painting, objects, sculptures, installations, performances and fotoperformances. Her artworks reflected the neo-dada spirit, the minimalist models and the conceptual strategies that dominated the art scene in the second half of the century in Argentina, crisscrossed with the iconographic repertoire of alchemy and the spiritual quests overall, braving her self by the technological resources that the era offer her, without ever forgetting the necessary poetic elaboration. In Maresca’s works exist the will to place herself outside the conventions and also the desire to point the limit to certain territories. These principles that had place her in a resistance plane, are the ones that had provided to her work with an unique substance.
