Sabrina Merayo Nuñez is a Latin American immigrant artist based in New York. Born in Tierra del Fuego, in the South of Argentina, she earned her BFA from the University of Buenos Aires in 2004. Her background in design and furniture history of the XVII and XVIII centuries influenced her early work that explored the bounds between art, craft, and design in a series of sculptures and installations.
Over the years, she has developed an interest in the relationship between sculpture and the organic world. In 2017, she won two grants from the Argentinian National Founds for the Arts to participate in the Interdisciplinary Practices in Bio Art at the School of Visual Arts.
Her project “Humans as trees” was selected by the Coalesce Center for Biological Art at the University at Buffalo.
After these experiences, the artist started working on a series of sculptural pieces integrating biology and art. In her current practice, she explores the relationship between living and non-living things.
In 2019, she was part of the Creative Capital Artist Program at NYU.
Her work has been exhibited in group shows such as the New York Latin American Art Triennial, Bienal de Arte Joven, 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. Some of her solo shows include “Conformaciones” at Gachi Prieto Gallery, Buenos Aires, and “Cabinet Lab” at Chashama Space, New York.
