Pilar Quinteros works across drawing, sculpture, performance, and video. Her works are often intentionally fragile and made from unusual or recycled materials.
Co-commissioned by England’s Creative Coast, a landmark partnership project connecting the landscape and arts organisations across the South East coast, artist Quinteros presents Janus’ Fortress: Folkestone - a monumental sculptural head sited on a cliff top that looks both outwards at Europe and inward to England, contemplating the mixed fortunes of what connects us but also divides us.
She has created public artworks across the world and previously exhibited her work in places such as Kusthaus Pasquart (Biel, Switzerland, 2018); 2017 California-Pacific Triennial – Building as Ever (Newport Beach, California, USA); 32nd São Paulo Biennial – Live Uncertainty (São Paulo, Brazil, 2016); 31st Biennial of Graphic Arts – Over You-You (Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2015); PinchukArtCentre (Kiev, Ukraine, 2014); National Museum of Fine Arts (Santiago, Chile, 2013); Museum of Contemporary Art (Santiago, Chile, 2010), among others.
Pilar Quinteros lives and works in Santiago, Chile.
