Maria Amparo Carrión Cerdá

My work is mainly conceptual and heavily influenced by philosophical theory.

Boredom determines our existence here and now, it exposes us to the physicality of time, and it is at the centre of my practice. I focus on video performances where I expose myself to boredom, waiting and anticipation. Drawing from Heidegger’s texts my pieces aim to explore ideas of meaning and the in-between.
With the objective of studying an emotion that often seems negative, I am taking a playful and humorous approach to the actions portrayed, which informed by Sisyphean absurdity, don’t focus on purpose, but rather are movement for the sake of movement. I create because I can.
