Andrea Muniáin & Adina L. Velázquez

Andrea Muniáin (Tudela, 1994) and Adina L. Velázquez (Mexico City, 1991) is a duo artist who lives and works in Madrid, where they started to collaborate. Their work considers the possibilities for self-perception allowed by the representation of the digital body. Coming from very different backgrounds—Adina is a psychologist, producer and DJ, whereas Andrea has a bachelor in architecture from ETSAM (Madrid)—they have created a body of work based on the physicality of the virtual and on the ways we see our bodies in the posdigital world. Whilst Adina’s practice focuses on the creation of sound landscapes, Andrea’s works represent their visual and material expression. Their previous body of work has focussed on what they call ‘Prototypes’, a series of second-skin nude experiments connected to cameras that, when put on (performed), generate bodyscapes where physicality and virtuality are intertwined.
