A Galician visual artist based in Berlin, Bego's interdisciplinary production specializes in the use of light as a pictorial and sculptural tool. Her work explores the feedback between the real and the represented, through playing with binomials such as: real/false, presence/absence and original/copy. Light is for her a tool of simulation and optical illusion capable of giving life to inanimate objects, blurring the boundaries between reality and representation, presence and absence.  

 

Bego graduated in Fine Arts in 2007, and she finished her Master in Art and Technology at the Polytechnic University of Valencia in 2008. In 2010 she moved to Prague to work as a guest lecturer in the Department of Cinema and Animation of the Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, University of Prague (Czech Republic). Where she developed a curriculum based on the hybridization of cinematographic, analogue and digital techniques, for use in cinema and plastic arts.
