The work of Maura Biava is inspired by the hidden laws of nature. The regular forms of the organic world originated according to certain rules, information and energy. As an artist Biava wishes to find ways to make her work according to those principles.
During the last decades she has been working with analytic geometry and mathematics to create, understand and work with shapes. The interaction between information and matter informs and shapes what we see, it forms our reality. To show this interaction in her work Biava uses clay, as the matter, and mathematics and numbers, as the information. At the same time Biava works and shows the energy that is involved and generated in the making. She shows the energy by making the performative aspect of her work visible on the basis of photographic works that she combines with sculptures. She considers the work process as part of the artwork. She regards matter as entangled with the information and a phenomena in becoming.
