Inma Herrera (1986, Madrid) studied Fine Arts and Art Creation and Research (MA) at UCM, Madrid. She was trained as Print Media Specialist at the Spanish Royal Mint, Madrid. Recently she finished her MFA studies in Kuvataideakatemia, Helsinki.
Herrera works on practise-based projects which examine the fragility and genesis of an image, the physical dimension of labor, and the revival of the craftsmanship in defiance of the 'relative dematerialisation' of the body in the era of technology and virtuality. She resorts to printmaking expanding it into installation, video-performance, and sculpture.
