Sabrina Merayo Nuñez is a New York-based Latin American artist. Born in Tierra del Fuego, in the south of Argentina, Sabrina received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Buenos Aires in 2004. Her background in design and the history of furniture has influenced her early work, in which she has explored the boundaries between art, craft, and design in a series of sculptures and installations.
Over the years, she has become interested in how sculpture relates to the living world. In 2017, she participated in the Interdisciplinary Practices in Bio Art at SVA, receiving two grants from the Argentine National Fund for the Arts. Her project, Humans as Trees, was selected by the University at Buffalo's Coalesce Center for Biological Art.
As a result of these experiences in Bioart, the artist began to work on a series of sculptural pieces that integrate biology and art. In her current practice, Merayo Nuñez continues to explore the relationship between human and non-human things and the processes of co-creation.
She will be part of the artist-in-residency program of the New York Latin American Art Triennial and PTM Contemporary on Governors Island during July and August 2023. In 2019, she was selected to participate in the Creative Capital Artist Program at NYU.
Her work has been shown in group exhibitions such as the New York Latin American Art Triennial, Bienal de Arte Joven de Buenos Aires; The Latin American Experience Gala curated by Maricarmen Ramirez and Marcelo Pacheco at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston; "Ancestral Echoes: A Decade of Bio Art" curated by Suzanne Anker and NYCxDESIGN FESTIVAL. Some of her solo exhibitions include "Conformaciones" at Gachi Prieto Gallery Buenos Aires and "Cabinet Lab" at Chashama Space, New York.
