Amalia Pica was born in Neuquén, Argentina. She currently lives and works in London and Mexico City. Communication is at the heart of Pica’s practice. Raised in Argentina during a period of state dictatorship, Pica questions the role of language in her work, exploring the reception and delivery of messages in drawings, installations, sculptures, photographs, performances and videos. Strangers are often invited to participate in her performances, forming silent conversations and exchanges through their involvement. In addition, everyday objects, such as bureaucratic stamps, furniture, shoes and bottles, are often used in an ironic subversion of linguistics.
