Belen Santamarina


Belen Santamarina was born in 1993 in Buenos Aires, Argentina and currently lives in London, United Kingdom.

Her formation is based on critical study groups and painting workshops. She trained with Argentinean artists Diana Aisenberg, Flavia Da Rin, Fabiana Barreda and Belen Romero Gunset.

Her practice gravitates around migration, collective experiences across genealogies, territory and the use of contemporary communication technologies. She uses techniques commonly attached to the idea of the 'domestic', such as embroidery, spinning, cooking and the use of the soil.

She uses hair, soil, cloth and food as mater to create tapestries, performances, videos, installations and collaborative works.

Belen Santamarina has exhibited her work in Argentina, Taiwan, Spain, the USA and UK.
