"My beloved aunt Josefina Núñez "Tita" passed away from cancer on July 6th. I am thankful that I was able to spend every day by her side since she was diagnosed in February. She was so brave and hopeful and put up a strong fight but unfortunately her cancer couldn't be cured. We are so proud of her and we will never forget her loving smile and laughter. We hope that with our help many other people will survive and live long healthy lives.

Click here to view a video of the interactive projection installation MarDesierto/DesertSea
Victoria Febrer's latest interactive projection installation, MarDesierto/DesertSea has been selected as a finalist in in this year's Digital Graffiti festival. Post-production of the piece was done through a collaboration with Pedro J. Padilla.

At this link, you can see an interview between the curator and myself about the piece.

MarDesierto/DesertSea, attempts to make visible the relationships between landscape, history, and those who briefly inhabit these vast expanses. Our personal and universal feelings of connection to history and landscape through memory are but a glimpse into the network that connects us. This interactive installation considers not just roles of the artist and viewer in the act of remembering, but the sea, the desert, the wind, the salt, the earth, and the light in this process—the way that the non-human elements exert their existence and connect us to history, time, and geography.



In Memoriam, Pere María Orts i Bosch

Victoria Febrer
Celebrating the opening of my first show in Valencia in 2008 with my great uncle Pere María Orts i Bosch and my parents
"I would like to take a moment to remember my great uncle Pere María Orts i Bosch, who passed away last week in Valencia, Spain. My "tío abuelo" was a renowned scholar on the history and language of Valencia, and a limitlessly generous individual. He amassed an enormous art collection with the sole purpose of donating it to the city of Valencia. In 2004, he donated over 300 works to the Museum of Fine Arts San Pio V, including paintings by Sorolla, Zuloaga, Rusiñol, and Murillo together with important works of decorative arts and furniture. He was also very supportive of my own artistic career. His encouragement was especially meaningful to me because he frequently remarked that he disliked almost all contemporary art but that he genuinely liked my work very much. I will miss him greatly, may he rest in peace." --Victoria Febrer

Victoria Febrer's latest solo show in New York City will take place at LICMarket, from August 27th - November 11th.

"Febrer’s vinographs (printed with red wine) in this series on handmade paper use the repetition of five iconic forms: poppies (symbols of the Greek goddess of fertility and the harvest), wheat (another symbol of fertility and the harvest), The Venus of Willendorf, a Cycladic figure of a standing woman, and two female figures from a prehistoric painting in Cogul, Catalonia, Spain. With these symbols she creates a controlled minimalist lexicon. Through the repetition and arrangement of this alphabet she explores ideas of power, fertility, solitude and the absurd."

Victoria Febrer & Pedro J. Padilla. "Flight of Memory". 2012
"Flight of Memory" a project I created in collaboration with filmmaker Pedro J. Padilla, has been selected as a finalist in the Digital Graffiti Festival in Alys Beach, Florida.

Exploring the way in which memory selectively simplifies and reduces the features of those places that are recalled, this piece conjures the image of a seascape from memory, bringing it to light through the flight of a flock of seagulls. As the birds approach the viewer, rather than obstructing the view of the sky and the sea, they illuminate and reveal it. A peaceful seascape emerges from the void with each beat of the seagulls’ wings, visible for only an instant. The image that comes to light is not real, but instead imagined and remembered, exploring the experience of recollection by investigating how memory reduces the features of a landscape to their most basic elements and how these simplified elements act as a stimulus for recalling places both visited and imagined. Only glimpses of the seascape are revealed as the birds fly by, allowing the viewer to transform and color the vista with their own memories and transporting them to a place existing only in memory.

"Since I have always been drawn to the sea, it is a luxury to live inside of the incredible energy of this great urban center but at the same time have the calm of the sea just a few steps away." She lives off her art but confesses that she spends many hours alone in her studio: "By nature, this is a solitary profession, because of that I believe that it is important for artists to participate actively in their communities. I teach at the Cooper Union Saturday Program, which offers free art classes to New York City public high school students." -Amelia Alas
