Born in Paris in 1980, multidisciplinary artist Luna Paiva works in the
mediums of sculpture, installation and photography. Currently based
in Buenos Aires, she was educated at La Sorbonne, receiving a degree in
Art History and Archaeology, and went on to study Film at New York
University. In her practice, Luna works with objects whose initial
purpose was not to become art, but existed as a blank canvas —
raw in their natural state —that could be fashioned into something more for
the aesthetic pleasure of the human eye. Accompanying her father on
a journey up the Paraná River from Argentina into the Paraguayan
jungle, Luna discovered objects that were to become to source of her
artistic inspiration: mounted rocks, succulent plants and cacti. Her
fascination with exploring the natural world has led her to exhibit at
international art fairs like Art Basel Miami, to created whimsical window
displays for the fashion house Hermès, and design intricate stage sets
for theaters and opera houses in South and North America. Luna’s
work is also part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern
Art in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
