About the artist

Amalia Pica was born in 1978 in Neuquén, Argentina and currently lives and works in London. Encompassing sculpture, performance, installation, video, and drawing, her work examines systems of communication and what brings people together. Using seemingly simple materials and found objects, she investigates human modes of interaction, especially our desire to be understood and the accompanying pleasures and failures. Pica has exhibited globally and completed public commissions including at the University of North Carolina; 'Semaphores', King’s Cross, London; and Sipping colors, De Pijp Station, Amsterdam. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of Tate, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
