Angyvir Padilla

ANGYVIR PADILLA (b. 1987, Caracas, Venezuela; lives and works in Brussels) creates immersive installations and performances that use a variety of materials and media to distil the concept of ‘home’ as an intimate space while addressing notions of memory, identity and nature. Padilla's artistic training took place in Belgium, first at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels (2011–12), then at ENSAV La Cambre (2012–15) and LUCA School of Arts (2016–18). In 2020 she was awarded the SABAM prize at the ArtContest in Brussels and in 2021 the Friends of S.M.A.K. Prize in Ghent. She has exhibited her work at the IKOB museum in Eupen (2023), the Antwerp Art Weekend (2023), the Krasj Festival, Ninove (2022), the Centrale Vitrine, Brussels (2021), CIAP, Genk (2022), and S.M.A.K in Ghent. She has also gained international recognition through exhibitions in Paris, Dunkirk, Belgrade, Athens and Caracas.

Angyvir was a resident artist at the Fondation Fiminco in Paris until July 2023. In August 2023 she started her residency at Moussem in Brussels.
