MARIA JOSÉ ARJONA, Born in Bogota, Colombia 1973. Lives and works in New York.
Maria José Arjona is an artist whose practice is mainly focused on long durational performance. Throughout her career she has developed several
approaches to endure, resist, and understand what she considers the biggest and most critical element in performance: TIME
Her body of work is divided into single pieces and performance cycles which operate in synchronicity within the chronological timeline.
Simultaneously the performance cycles create a diverging path where the artist compiles a series of works to understand the meaning of specific
concepts and their effects and on the body. Both unfold into dynamics where the presence of the artist functions outside
the boundaries of identity.
Maria José Arjona's performances have been exhibited in Museums and galleries in South America, Europe, China and the Unites States and have been reviewed by Art Nexus, Arte Al Dia, The New York Times, The Guardian (UK), Whitewall Magazine, The Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald and many others. She participated as a re-performer at Marina Abramović's retrospective at The Museum Of Modern Art in New York and started touring with her own work at The Madre Museum in Naples (Italy) as part of the program “Corpus, Arte In Azione”.
Location One is extremely grateful to The NY State Council on
the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and Location One's International Committee for making
these events possible.
