Antonia Alarcón

Born in 1994 in Chile, Antonia's artistic journey spans across borders and cultures, with Mexico City serving as both her current home and creative haven. Her passion for the arts has led her to diverse educational experiences, honing her craft by studying Plastic and Visual Arts at ENPEG "La Esmeralda" in Mexico and expanding her artistic horizons at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavik.

In her own words, Antonia is an artist, writer, and researcher specializing in textile mediums. Her creative exploration is deeply rooted in the intricate interplay between memory and empathy, humanity and nature. Recently, she has taken an interest in non-human migratory processes and sustainable textile practices, further exploring these themes through artistic residencies in Oaxaca (Residencia Texere) and Mexico City (Residencias Laguna).

With a deft command over various mediums, particularly embroidery and writing, Antonia weaves together image and story to craft narratives that resonate on a profound level. Her work not only reflects her artistic prowess but also invites contemplation on universal themes of memory, empathy, and the enduring connection between humanity and the world around us. 

Antonia's artistic contributions have been recognized by institutions such as the Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, awarding her the Jóvenes Creadores Scholarship twice, during 2020-2021 and 2023-2024. She has participated in various group and individual exhibitions, the most notable being “Dónde crecen los claveles” (LOOT Gallery, CDMX), “Instructions For Reading A Body” (RYMD, Reykjavík), and “Con mi dedo trazo el camino del agua” [With my finger, I trace the path of the water] (Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, CDMX).
