Ana Bidart (Uruguay/Mexico) in her practice explores how we perceive time through body and matter in everyday life. She has focused her research on the action of drawing. Process and play have an essential role in her work that includes painting, site-specific installations, performance, video and writing.
During her residency at Delfina Foundation, Ana will develop a series of “soft diaries”, a research project to deepen on the relationship between writing and drawing. She is interested in exploring the sensory aspect of writing and potential readings beyond language.
Ana studied at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism at Uruguayan State University. Selected exhibitions include: Escrituras en presente continuo, Museo Cabañas, Guadalajara, Mexico (2022); Swimming Room at NADA House with Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York (2021); Casa XII at Proyecto Paralelo, Mexico City (2020); Murales para un cubo blanco at Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, Mexico City (2020); Distancia Doble at Espac, Mexico City (2019); Cómo te voy a olvidar at Galerie Perrotin, Paris (2016); and 2 bed / 1 bath, nice view at Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York (2016). Ana also has experience in teaching and public programme development. Her pedagogical research focuses on artistic process. She has collaborated with Museo Tamayo, Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo, Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil and Museo Jumex in México, and with Universidad de la República and Museo Nacional de Artes Visuales in Uruguay. She is the author of Un golpe de suerte (2023), a drawing book for children published in Mexico by Piedra Ediciones.
Ana was born in Montevideo, Uruguay (1985). She works between Mexico and Uruguay and is currently based in Mérida, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
