Andrea Siervo, Caracas, Venezuela
Andrea Siervo (1988). Architect and Venezuelan artist, graduated from the Central University of Venezuela. Her artistic practice began at the end of 2015. She is currently working and living in Venezuela. Her works have been exhibited in Miami, Venezuela and are part of several private collections.
Siervo’s research begins as an exploration that seeks to highlight the limits, one of the most important elements in architecture, which define space and specify reality. She aims to challenge the rigidity of the walls in which we live with permeable works that give the appearance of movement, even when the existing architectural elements limit us physically and psychologically.
She considers making art a passion that executes applying formal rules that can be perceived as liberating restrictions. Her practice is based on formal associations that open a unique poetic vein and create multi-layered pieces in which the fragility and instability of a seemingly solid reality is questioned, where meanings are displaced and their possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Its pieces are composed of a two-dimensional geometric curtain, formed by controlled lines and horizons, which change smoothly to give the feeling that even when fully extended, they become more flexible.
