I look for silence, a mind free of words, free of thoughts, free of language, a mental silence. Following a rhythm, I instinctively repeat an act, a mark, then another, this insubstantial gesture is the daily foundation that I use to register every day.

It is my infinite habit.

Ana Catalina Vicuña was born in Chile (1977), where she pursued a career in graphic design  at Universidad Católica de Chile. In 2002 she moved to New Zealand, where she started her artistic career with her first solo exhibition “Life under a microscope” (2004, The Arts Centre). She later returned to Chile where her work has been exhibited widely. Her main exhibitions in Chile were “Mente Serena” (2009, Patricia Ready Gallery), “190.05.01” (2012, Patricia Ready Gallery), and “Otro lugar aquí mismo” (2015  XS Gallery). Her work has also been exhibited in group exhibitions abroad (France, Spain, USA, and New Zealand); and at international art fairs, such as Slick Art Fair (Paris, 2013) and Art al Vent (Spain, 2015). Ana Catalina’s work is part of private collections, such as Masisa Company and Talca University.

Back in New Zealand she exhibited her exhibition “Tides” (2019 PG Gallery). In 2023 her last solo exhibition “Infinite Habit” was showed at Sala Gasco Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago, and at the gallery “Tierra del Fuego” in Punta Arenas, Chile.

She currently lives and works in Requínoa, VI region, Chile.
