Carolina Saquel Martinez

  • Caroline Saquel was born in Chile and now lives and works in Paris. After graduating in art from Santiago de Chili Pontifical Catholic University, she enrolled at the National Studio of Contemporary Art of Le Fresnoy, from 2003 to 2005 and then carried on her research at the University of Paris 8, Vincennes-Saint-Denis where she completed a Master’s degree in 2008, in contemporary art and new media. In the other videos she has produced, she uses moving image as a power enabling the alteration of time. Throughout her work she has questioned the relationship between her videos and painting, as well as the sculptural use that could be made of them. She uses nature as raw material, playing on textures, tones, the relationships between shade and light. She gives much importance to the rhythms of the images through perspective and leveling effects, complex movements of the camera or on the contrary insists on immobility and the strict definition of the framed image.
