NOEMI IGLESIAS

Noemi Iglesias (1987) is a Spanish multimedia artist working with porcelain and long-durational performative formats. Her practice is concerned with the role of visual arts at the intersections of experimental disciplines, applying traditional ceramics techniques to generate innovative and provocative concepts within the contemporary art scene.

Her work, aesthetically beautiful and attractive, is focused on the production of porcelain and new media installations to report how emotional experiences, such as falling in love, are influenced by consumerist strategies. More recently, due to the Pandemic situation, she redirected her artistic research into how human emotions and affective bonds are established through social media and what is the role played by online dating applications in the age of social distancing.

Noemi is a natural observer of humans behaviors in different contexts and cultures and a clear example of what we call “contemporary nomadism”. Since 2009 the artist has lived and worked in Greece, England, Finland, Italy, Hungary, China, and Korea.
In 2019 she finished her Master's Degree at the Tainan National University of the Arts, where she researched contemporary ceramic practices for 3 years thanks to the Taiwan ROC Scholarship from the Taiwanese government.

Recently, her work has been exhibited at the Zaha Hadid - Opus Tower Me Dubai building (UAE), the Gimhae Clayarch Museum (KR), the Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art (TW), LABoral Centro de Arte, and the Alcora Ceramics Museum, the Yingge Ceramics Biennale (TW), the Faenza Prize (IT), Estampa Contemporary Art Fair, and the Mark Rothko Art Center in Latvia.

Currently, Noemi is living and working in Lisbon, Portugal, where she is studying a PhD degree in contemporary sculpture at the Fine Arts University.
