Amanda Piña is a Mexican-Chilean-Austrian artist and cultural worker living between Vienna and Mexico City. Her work is concerned with the decolonisation of art, focusing on the political and social power of movement. Her works are contemporary rituals for temporarily dismantling the ideological separations between modern and traditional, the human, the animal and the vegetal, nature and culture. Amanda Piña is interested in making art beyond the idea of a product and in developing new frameworks for the creation of sensual experiences.
Her pieces have been presented in renown art institutions such as Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Paris, MUMOK Museum of Modern Art, TQW and ImpulsTanz Festival, in Vienna. DeSingel Antwerpen, STUK Leuven, Buda Kortrijk, Beursschouwburg Brussels, Royal festival Hall London, Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico City, Tanz NRW, Düsseldorf and HAU, Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin, NAVE and Festival Internacional Santiago a Mil in Chile.
Currently she works on the realisation of the long-term project ‘Endangered Human Movements’, dedicated to movements and cultural practices that have already vanished or are threatened with extinction. Four volumes of research in the scope of this project have been already realised which include performances, installations, videos, publications, workshop and lectures.
