November 1 – December 1, 2019
From birth she begins the comings and goings between the previously mentioned city-town of Maracaibo and the fantasy land called Miami. In 2012 she receives her Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from Florida International University with minors in art history and communications. During a brief parallel time she also attends Le Cordon Bleu’s program for baking and pastry.
Nones-Kobiakov mixes installations, photography, performances and site specific work to follow a line that uses the materiality of different foods and ingredients while researching themes relating to displacement, comfort and their affections with our surroundings. Her initial focus in photography can be seen throughout her most current work, as an attempt to capture and recreate sensations. Since 2011 she has participated in various group and individual exhibitions between Maracaibo, Miami, and most recently Mexico. Her first individual exhibition was in 2014, appropriately titled Short Stories: choose between living or telling which in many ways foreshadowed how she would relate to art making from that point forward. Her narratives bypass verbal language and seek to activate the senses towards a more evocative experience.
In 2018 Nones-Kobiakov finished SOMA’s Educational Program in Mexico City, where she currently eats and works.
