Vivian Javiera Castro Villarroel
I’m a Chilean Visual Artist who has lived and worked in São Paulo since 2014. My degree is a Bachelor in Visual Arts with an emphasis in photography from the Universidad de Chile (2007). My Master’s degree is in Media and Audiovisual Processes from the Universidade de São Paulo (2016) and I’m currently studying for a doctorate in the same program. I have participated in internships in Germany, at the University of Fine Arts of Hamburg (2007) and in Portugal, at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (2015). My work has been exhibited at several museums and cultural centers of Chile and Uruguay. I produced and am the co-curator of the binational artistic project Continuum. In Montevideo, I was a photography and contemporary art teacher at the Universidad Católica del Uruguay and a visual communication teacher at the Universidad de la República.
I’m exploring the intersection of text and image in a new form of documentary photography. My research is currently focuses on the transformations of the urban landscape.
