Raquel Meyers

Raquel Meyers is a Spanish artist who defines her practice as KYBDslöjd (drawing by typing). In KYBDslöjd, the screen is the canvas, a rectilinear grid on which one keystroke at a time build a character-by-character imaginary. Like crafting or the typewriter technique. It is brutality itself because it reveals what it is and what it does without adornment. Meyers’ entry “Vladijenk II (The corroded mainframe at Tartarus edition)” for the inaugural edition of Supernova in 2016 garnered her the festival’s second prize award, delivering a glorious array of pixilated motion that stands as a shining beacon for the historic depths of technologies infiltration into art. She returned to the festival in 2017 as a guest juror and focal solo-artist.
