Ivana de Vivanco
Ivana de Vivanco (b. 1989) is a Chilean-Peruvian artist based in Germany. Her work commonly relies on nonsensical narratives, with mythical tendencies and recurrent characters that violate the intimacy of the private domain through scenarios that seem enlivened by uncanny, dreamlike or even vaguely nightmarish curiosities. Her work has been featured in several publications such as 100 Painters of Tomorrow published in London by Thames & Hudson and has been exhibited in the USA, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, England, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, Luxembourg, Poland, and Chile. She was awarded the DAAD, the Heinrich Böll Foundation, and the Cultural Foundation of Saxony grant. In 2015 she was awarded the Marion-Ermer-Prize for young artists in Germany. Most recently her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago (CL), Kunsthalle Darmstadt (DE) and The RYDER Projects in Madrid (ES).
Yan held his first solo exhibition at Espaço CC in São Paulo, Brazil in 2018 and has participated in several collective exhibitions throughout Brazil in places such as the Rio de Janeiro Federal Justice Cultural Center, A Gentil Carioca Gallery, Rio Grande do Sul State Public Archive, and the Diversity Museum in São Paulo – and also took part in independent exhibitions in France, Spain, United States and Peru. Last year he was invited to join a residency at the University of The Underground – research bureau “If I can’t dance I don’t want to be part of your revolution”, Amsterdam – Tbilisi.
