Mariel Andrea Tarela
I work as a ceramics artist and researcher. As a professor of History of Ceramics Arts, Contemporary Ceramics Arts and Ceramic Modeling at the Fernando Arranz School of Higher Arts Education in Buenos Aires. As an associate professor at the Faculty of Arts at the National University of La Plata, Argentina
I could not separate my academic activity as associated professor, as a research fellow and PhD candidate from my own artistic practice, while everything I read and see in specialized bibliography on the one hand, and the critical dialogues with younger generations of students and colleagues on the other, compels me to confront my certainties and enhances my work as artist.
And because I do it for such a long time, it’s really become the way I think about myself, it’s become entirely part of my life.
