Teresa Solar

Teresa Solar (b.1985) lives and works in Madrid, Spain. Solar works across sculpture, video, drawing and photography. Her exhibitions usually function as complete ecosystems of thought, creating complex worlds that either draw from literary works of fiction, mythology, Natural History or more terrestrial narratives that are close to her personal history.  Her practice has been focused around verbal and sensorial language capacity, including the process of translation and the construction of meaning through words and bodily enactments. In this sense, Solar approaches her sculptures and installations as corporeal functions that relate to the industrial world, where hybrid forms of existence are constantly produced; her objects, then, constitute a crossbreed between the manmade, the natural and the mythical. Recent exhibitions include Index Foundation, Stockholm (2019); Galería Travesía Cuatro Ciudad de México, México (2019); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2018); and Der Tank, Basel (2018).
