Ingrid Wildi Merino

Ingrid Wildi Merino was born in Santiago de Chile on September, 19th in 1963. In the 80’s she migrated with her family to Switzerland in the midst of the civil-military dictatorship. Since 2016 she lives and works in Santiago de Chile and is artist, author, video-essayist, curator and teacher at different Universities. Her artistic practice is focused on research and involves her fieldwork on the results of colonization and globalization. In her video essays and installations, the artist links interviews and cinematographic sequences of landscapes showing different sociocultural issues, which has led her to develop the notion of Transparencias, concept that philosophically addresses within her pieces of writing and symbolically within her work as visual artist. The Ingrid Wildi Merino’s intercultural and interdisciplinary proposal covers different types of work that maintain a dialogue among different means: video essays, interviews, texts, performances, photography and diagrams which converge in special installations. Her work also adopts the shape of journals, conferences, curatorship research projects and collaboration with collectives and the decolonial network of Santiago de Chile.
