Contemporary visual artist Alejandra Seeber (Buenos Aires, 1969), has been described as having a dialogic approach to painting, where intentionality and random procedures, failings and acceptance operate together without hierarchy. Seeber conceptualizes painting, not from historical references or social conventions but from a visual culture crossed by alternative rock, theatrical stage designs, musical shows, the city’s underground, the digital softwares that started being used in graphic design and the technological novelty in publicity characteristic of the end of the last century. Laying her eyes in domestic interiors, architecture and decorations, Seeber finds an image of the world that she rapidly blows up in stains and squirts that scatter through the canvas making it impossible to see the difference between in and out, between figures and abstraction. In this battle for domesticating symbols and updating meaning, Seeber ends up adding new forms and contexts to images resulting in multiple-layered works that invite us to renegotiate the boundaries between totality and fragment.
Some of her most recent projects are A oJO (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2021), Fuera de serie (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, 2021), Getaways (Hausler Contemporary, Lustenau, Austria, 218); Autoamerican (Barro, Buenos Aires, 2015); Cuadro por cuadro (Miau Miau, Buenos Aires, 2014); Yes-yes (Hausler Contemporary, Munich, 2011) Tutti Frutti (Hausler Contemporari, Zurich, 2011); Dialogville (Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, 2010); Muro O’reverie (Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, 2009), Pinturalia, Galeria (Fernando Pradilla, Madrid, 2008); The Pregnant painter (Virgil de Voldere Gallery, Nueva York, 2007); Duos (Sperone Westwater, Nueva York (2003); Living Rum (Dabbah Torrejón Arte Contemporáneo, Buenos Aires, 2002); This Room: Painting as a Second Language (Parlour Projects, Brooklyn, 2001); and Serendipia (Galerie de L’Alliance Française, Buenos Aires, 1999), among others. She lives and works in New York.
