ENG // Marta Moreno Muñoz (Spain, 1978) is a performance and video artist with a background in experimental theatre and other time-based arts. Graduating in 2002 with a M.A in Fine Arts, her work has focused predominantly on “feminine” subjectivity, dissolution of the ego and the notion of pre-oedipal nostalgia in response to a patriarchal and undesirable reality. She is at present in a transitional stage, shifting towards the conceptualization of larger-scale projects exploring the complex interchange between performance art and the cinematic language. Marta Moreno has lived, produced and engaged in artistic works in Spain, UK, Turkey, India, The Netherlands, Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines and exhibited internationally. Currently nomadic, she is working on personal art projects, researching for her PhD thesis “Art as an Experience of Dissolution of the Self” and directing The Unifiedfield.

The Unifiedfield is an independent art space and artist-run organization focusing on the experimental aspects of sound, video and performance art. It previously occupied a traditional complex amongst rice fields in Yogyakarta (Indonesia), subsequently moving into a cave in Granada (Spain) before settling in an antique building nestled in Granada’s historic Moorish quarters, the Albayzín where it ran an artist residency for three years. In 2013 The Unifiedfield initiated its Nomadic Artist-in-Residence Program in The Philippines in partnership with Balud Art Network. Access to The Unifiedfield’s Nomadic Artist-In-Residence program in The Philippines is open to all artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers and curators without restriction, but priority is given to artists working on environmental and relational, site-specific projects on the experimental and interdisciplinary fringes.

Since its inception in 2009, some of the primary goals of The Unifiedfield have been the production and diffusion of new interdisciplinary and non-commercial forms of art, together with the creation of artistic exchanges between Asia and Europe. In this time, it has organized monthly events, video art screenings and experimental music concerts at both its Yogyakarta and Granada spaces; initiated two Artist-In-Residence programs; produced site-specific works and held clandestine interventions in public spaces; conducted workshops on performance and sound art; curated and exhibited at art institutions such as Nikolaj Kunsthallen (Copenhagen), the Museum Of Contemporary Art (Taipei), the Singapore Art Museum and The Substation (Singapore); presented experimental music from Singapore at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao as part of a fringe festival; and produced The Future Sounds Of Folk, a project that attempts to use diverse musical traditions of Indonesia as a starting point for the development of new amalgams of experimental music, in partnership with Amsterdam-based institution STEIM.

‘I understand artistic practice as a vehicle that can transform life, our relation with ourselves, society, and the natural world by experimenting with our subjectivities, expanding the consciousness and therefore creating new existential scenarios’.

ESP// Marta Moreno Muñoz (1978, España) es una artista que trabaja en diferentes disciplinas como el arte de acción, el vídeo y otras artes basadas en el tiempo. Licenciada en Bellas Artes en 2002, su trabajo se ha centrado fundamentalmente en temas como la subjetividad “femenina”, la disolución del ego y la noción de nostalgia preedípica, en respuesta a una realidad de orden patriarcal. Marta Moreno ha vivido y producido obras en España, Reino Unido, Turquía, India, los Países Bajos, Indonesia, Singapur, Filipinas y ha mostrado sus vídeos y performances en festivales y exposiciones internacionalmente. Actualmente nómada, se encuentra inmersa en la conceptualización de nuevos proyectos explorando las relaciones entre el arte de performance y el lenguaje cinematográfico, investigando para su tesis doctoral “El arte como experiencia de disolución del sujeto” y dirigiendo The Unifiedfield.

The Unifiedfield / el campo unificado es un colectivo de artistas autogestionado y espacio artístico independiente centrado en los aspectos experimentales del sonido, el vídeo y el arte de performance. The Unifiedfield instaló su primera sede en un complejo tradicional rodeado de arrozales en Yogyakarta (Indonesia); posteriormente se trasladó a una cueva en Granada (España), para finalmente establecerse en un antiguo edificio ubicado en el barrio histórico del Albayzín, donde se llevó a cabo una residencia artística durante tres años. En 2013 The Unifiedfield inició su programa nómada de artistas en residencia en Filipinas en colaboración con Balud Art Network.

Desde su creación en 2009, los principales intereses de The Unifiedfield han sido la producción y difusión de nuevas formas artísticas interdisciplinares y no comerciales, así como el establecimiento de intercambios artísticos entre Asia y Europa. En este tiempo The Unifiedfield ha organizado mensualmente eventos, proyecciones de vídeoarte y conciertos de música experimental en sus espacios en Yogyakarta y Granada; iniciado dos programas de artistas en residencia; realizado obras site-specific e intervenciones clandestinas; impartido talleres de performance y arte sonoro; comisariado muestras de vídeo en instituciones como el Nikolaj Kunsthallen de Copenhague, el Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Taipei, el Singapore Art Museum y The Substation en Singapur; programado música experimental de Singapur en un festival alternativo en el Museo Guggenheim de Bilbao; y producido, en colaboración con STEIM (Ámsterdam), The Future Sounds Of Folk, un proyecto que investiga las diversas tradiciones musicales de Indonesia como punto de partida para el desarrollo de nuevas amalgamas de música experimental.
