Voluspa Jarpa Studio was created in 2015 by Chilean artist Voluspa Jarpa to produce and manage her artwork and exhibitions, both in Chile and abroad. It focuses on the development of Visual Arts projects, and its activities have their origin in creativity, skills, and talent, with a high component of innovation and creation of contemporary languages and narratives from art.
Voluspa Jarpa Studio is dedicated to the design, production, consultancy, and development of artistic projects for educational, intellectual, exhibition, institutional and heritage spaces. The artistic career of Voluspa Jarpa, characterized by the generation of critical thinking on contemporary time, is the focus and collaboration to which the study is devoted. This reflects in her artwork and has led her to obtain wide recognition both nationally and internationally. The artwork and thought produced at Voluspa Jarpa Studio are unique with high material quality and conceptual clarity.
1.- Design and production of artistic projects for institutional, exhibition and heritage spaces, based on exclusive and unique intellectual capital, cultural, creative, and commercial value contents.
2.- Design and production of contemporary artwork. It involves the generation of ideas and knowledge present in the processes of contemporary art, particularly multidisciplinary work (architecture, complex three-dimensional installations, assemblies that can be formed by hand-made or industrially made pieces, video installations, objectual, two-dimensional or virtual devices, made in various supports and materials.)
3.- Generation and circulation of contemporary artwork. Distinguished because their objective is the production of knowledge, with parts and material supports indifferent to their commercial value, and only materialize when all the elements are placed according to the instructions of the creative ideas exported. The fundamental feature of this export service is that its value is based on the creative motif and its meaning, beyond the cultural, economic, and social return.
