  • Catalogue Essay

    Camacho (b. 1983, Philippines) explorations often attempt to manifest the indeterminate notions of time, memory, space and distance in visible forms. In 2010, she made a series of line drawings based on a set of measurements of her body’s circumference taken at half-inch intervals. This process of quantifying reduced an impression of her bodily form into an abstract image where the subject of representation has to be imagined. This is a print of the original pencil drawing but with the positive and negative spaces inverted.

    Camacho works with installation, performance and video. She received her BA in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard University, where she was awarded the Albert Alcalay Prize for Outstanding work in Studio Art and the David McCord Prize for Achievement in the Arts. Her work has been widely exhibited in galleries and institutions internationally, including at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Philippines; Kyoto Art Center, Japan; Triennale di Milano Design Museum, Italy; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, USA; and the Tate Modern, United Kingdom.
