Diana Barquero lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Through a multi-faceted practice encompassing video, sculpture installations and photography, the artist highlights points of friction, transformation and collapse within a socio political context. The recent work if you think you can grasp me, think again focuses on a protected wetland in Southern Costa Rica diminished by extensive agricultural farming and pesticides. Barquero presents the dichotomy, exploring the ‘productive spaces’ created within this uneasy co-existence. Recent exhibitions include Scratching the Surface, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, 2021; Sentient Matter, D21 Kunstraum Leipzig, 2021; If you think you can grasp me, think again, T.O.P (Transdisciplinary Project Space), 2021.
