In my work, I deal with the relationship between a physical experience and perception. My work consists in independent systems that run through their own laws and rules. Every element is connected to the other and they all interact together as a unit. One of the main characteristics of my pieces it the instability of its forms. My work moves between the second and third dimensions with no fixed shape in real time, so each piece defines itself between what it is and is not.
“…Chilindron privileges the three dimensions for the construction of her “objects situation”. At the same time, the works allude to a frontier between the flat, bi-dimensional and the spatial or three dimensional. This subtle limit teases the spectator who while viewing, doesn’t know if the objects are growing into space from a flat surface, building up, or if they are disappearing from the volume towards the plane. This ambiguity proposes all together a metaphorical narrative, while it highlights an emphasis on the notion of process. This is reinforced by the use of neutral surfaces and hollow, light appearances, for these objects also speak about de- materialization.”
The material of my preference is acrylic, due to its transparency. I laser cut and assemble it with hinges that provide me with the instability I seek for.
Chilindron was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and raised in Montevideo, Uruguay. In 1969 she moved to New York where she received a BFA from the State University of New York. She studied at the Camnitzer-Porter Studio in Valdottavo, Italy and in New York, with Julio Alpuy, a Uruguayan artist trained by Joaquín Torres-García. She completed numerous public works.
She was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, the Anonymous Was a Woman prize, a Joan Mitchell Award, she was part of the National Studio Program at PS1 MoMA and a Civitella Ranieri Artist Residency in Umbria, Italy.
