Carolina Magnin is a visual artist and co founder of La Ira de Dios, a non-profit artist led residency space that supports artists and curators.

Her practice and research is focused on the idea of remembrance as a fictional construction and photography as a creator of new realities. Magnin is interested in the concept of memory and its influence on the singularity of existence as well as the antinomical concepts that inhabits that idea: individuality and universality, reality and fiction, uniqueness and multiplicity, presence and absence.

Through the appropiation of archive material, the pieces explore a new state where marks, the hidden and the inability to scape oblivion are the essential synapse.

Some of Carolina Magnin’s solo exhibitions are: Bonheur (C.C. Recoleta, Bs As, 2016), Liebe (Exposure12 galerie, Berlin, 2015 and Fondo Nacional de las Artes, Bs As, 2015), AA201 (EAC, Montevideo, 2015), Ánima (Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Salta, 2014) y Museo Emilio Caraffa, (Córdoba, 2013), Timeline (Galeria Gachi Prieto, Bs As, 2010).
