AFTER NOON, unlike afternoon and very much like tomorrow, is a promise of something that is inevitable and yet never comes. It belongs to the mystical world, where what exists is that which can only be shown. That is the world which Sofia Quirno's works inhabit.
Inspired by the idea of the gallery space in continuous flux and the grid as the ultimate starting point to establish coordinates, the artist created a site-specific multimedia installation for the inaugural exhibition at M E N. The space, the work and the viewers are treated by Quirno as integral parts of the image, creating a constant tension between the limits and borders of the piece. The artist invites the visitors to immerse themselves in the experience, in the space where revelations are imminent, even if never attained.
Sofia Quirno was born in 1978 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She studied at the Instituto Universitario Nacional de Arte in Buenos Aires and received her MFA from Parsons (The New School of Design) in 2015. She is a recipient of the Robert Sterling Clark fellowship, and the art residencies at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Vermont Studio Center and the Triangle Artists Workshop, NYC. She lives and works in NYC.
