Sandra del Pilar Biography

Sandra del Pilar (b. 1973, Mexico) deals – in her paintings, objects and installations – with the phenomenon of transparency, which the artist understands as the place where the private and the political meet. With the transparent synthetic fibres she uses in her works, she materialises dream-like scenarios from the collective and personal memory, overrides our idea of ​​(image-) space and (linear) time, interweaves inside and outside, the world of images and the viewer's body and thus enables another look at the political and social events and conditions of our time.
