Victoria Papagni (1991) is a Visual Artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina, working with New Media and Post Internet Digital Culture as a tool, at the intersection of Art, Design and Technology. She develops her work in different formats such as 3D technology (sculptures and animation), Video Installations, Performance, Sound, Photography, among others. Her work can be read as the mixed physical and virtual proliferous display of her own avatar: an identity representation, an object, an on/off line subject.
She is a graduated Electronic Artist at UNTREF and a Sonovisual Producer in Electronic Image (UNTREF). She attended the postgraduate Cinema Program at UTDT (due to a scholarship) where she assisted in seminars with Lucrecia Martel and James Benning. She obtained the 2nd Prize of the 108th National Prize of Visual Arts in Installations and Alternative Media; She received the Stimulus Award in Object and Installation Essays from the National Endowment for the Arts and obtained the 2nd Prize Proyecto A - Contemporary Art.
She comes to Switzerland to continue her collaboration with the performer artist Tobibi Bienz from Zurich. Parasite Selfie is the project of the artistic duo. They are working in an interspecies collaboration between them and cockroaches, and they are developing the project with a transdisciplinary team made of film makers, biologists, industrial designers, musicians, and so on, from both countries (AR/CH).
