(General Villegas, Argentina, 1979)
Guillermina Baiguera is a visual artist and teacher whose practice and research is largely focused on embroidery.
She is especially interested in bringing embroidery work to challenging or critical situations. In this sense she incorporated drawing, sculpture or sculptural objects, ceramics, and also found objects or objects from her workshop or personal collection.
In her work you can read the history of embroidery, but above all a deconstruction of embroidery, if not a destruction. Her embroidery and the destruction of it are treatments that annihilate the very idea of this kind of work.
She currently lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
