Jazmín Berakha (Buenos Aires, 1980)
Jazmín Berakha lives and work in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her work encompasses a wide range of media that includes traditional crafts, as well as music and film. The artist focuses her work in needlepoint as an entry to investigate modern images. Her work explores the possibilities of textiles in contemporary art. Her investigation and research into textiles, prints and patterns, are an endless source of inspiration. Berakha´s meditative sewing process embraces aspects of domesticity with a consciousness of place and time. Her work balances between abstract images of fabric within fabrics, and portraits of women in frozen moments of unexplained contemplation, both coexisting in a multi-patterned world. All the life in these works are either engages by their focus or contained, held in place by the threads themselves.
Her work was exhibited in different galleries and institutions in Buenos Aires, New York, Paris and Berlin, among others…
