Mariona Moncunill

Artist and resercher

Mariona Moncunill combines artistic practice with teaching and research. She has a degree in Fine Arts and a master’s degree in Cultural Management from the University of Barcelona. She also has a PhD in Information Society and Knowledge from the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) where she is a member of the PROTCIS (Cultural and Social Opening and Closing Processes) research group. She has studied at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten (Royal Academy of Art) in The Hague and has had research stays at the Institute of Sociology at the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg (Germany) and at the Metropolitan Institute of Technology (ITM) in Medellin, Colombia.

Her artistic work, which usually takes specific forms, is situated in the context in which it emerges, inquiring into forms of creation of symbolic value and the epistemological residues that shape today’s social and cultural conventions. In this endeavour, she has explored different areas of knowledge, among them botany, museography, library science, and measuring time and length. In recent years, many of her projects have been concerned with research into the social construction of nature on the basis of specific case studies, including those pertaining to institutions, social practices, and specific territories. Notable in this area of her work are the projects Forest, Forest (2013), Text on Snow on the Botanical Garden (2013), Infidel Meridià (2018), AIL/EBS (2018), and Malpaís (2021).

She has taken part in exhibitions and conferences, as well as being an artist in residence at institutions in Spain, Italy, Finland, Lithuania, the United States, and elsewhere.
