Notes


About 

 

Paola Estrella is a multimedia artist born in Mexico City and based in London. Auto-fiction and self-discovery are central to her practice, through which she conveys notions of intimacy, desire, and becoming. Estrella explores how new technologies impact the public and the private spheres. She reflects on how the imaginary influences social conventions, gender, identity, and our notion of reality. Her work shifts across mixed media, video, installation, and performance as she dives into the blurred limits between the external and the internal world. 

 

Education 

 

Paola Estrella has a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art in Contemporary Art. She studied art direction and mixed media at Central Saint Martins and she has a BA in Graphic Design. 

 

Select Exhibitions/Awards 

 

Estrella's work has been shown at White Cube Gallery as part of Tomorrow:London, at Saatchi Gallery as part of Journeys: The Healing Arts in collaboration with CW+ Charity, at Matts Gallery as part of Mattflix, at the Franz Mayer Museum and the Museum of Mexico City in Meixco, at Out Sight Gallery in Seoul, Korea, at Zhou Brothers Art Gallery in Chicago, and at the Annual Festival of Post-pornography and Feminism, among others. 

 

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

Turning into a hummingbird is a self-portrait which captures a process of transformation. It is part of the project Embodying a Hummingbird which explores the space between fixed identities. It touches on the personal and the collective imaginary regarding bodily forms and possibilities. 

 

Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it. This auction has been organised for charity and all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for the Hepatitis C Trust. When the work produced for the charity is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
