Chantal Peñalosa

Chantal Peñalosa (1987, Tecate, Mexico) studied fine arts at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California and the University of São Paulo. She was awarded the acquisition prize in the XIV Bienal de Artes Visuales del Noroeste and was awarded FONCA fellowships in the Young Artists category (2013-2014 and 2015-2016). In 2014 she was also recipient of the Programa Bancomer-MACG in its 4th edition. Peñalosa’s research based practice stems from small gestures and interventions in everyday life, which are meant to expound upon notions of labour, waiting and delay. Repetition is a crucial element in her process, functioning as an allusion to the absurdity, weathering, and alienating effects of work. For Peñalosa repeating actions evoke latent states in which dialogue appears unilateral and time suspended.
