Analia Saban (b. 1980 in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a contemporary conceptual artist based in Los Angeles and New York City. Her work takes traditional artistic media such as drawing, painting and sculpture and pushes their limits as a scientific experimentation with art making.

Biography[edit]

Analia Saban grew up in Buenos Aires, hailing from intellectual European heritage, she always sort of knew that she wanted to be an artist. "This is what I was born to do,” she says.[1] Saban earned her B.F.A in Visual Arts from Loyola University New Orleans and her M.F.A in New Genres from UCLA,[2] she studied under the artist John Baldessari and now works in his former Santa Monica studio.[3]

Work[edit]

Saban often works with materials in ways that confuse or subvert their typical meaning or use in studio art practice, she describes her method of working as artistic, scientific, and archeological,[4]due to her awareness of the larger social implications of her material and object-based inquiries. Of her work, Saban has said "I like to work as unconsciously as I can, letting ideas take over my production. I try to avoid “forcing” the creative process. I try to keep a constant level of experimentation, but sometimes I also have to sit, look at previous work, or experiments, or the empty wall, and wait.."[5] She seeks to redefine the traditional notions of painting by utilizing the medium of paint as the subject of her work.[6]

Some of Saban's more well known projects have involved completely unraveling a painted canvas and re-weaving the threads into scarves or rolling them into a "Painting Ball,"[7] bending slabs of marble or concrete and draping them over sawhorses,[8] and printing plastic bags out of hand-made cotton paper.[9]

She is the winner of the Norton Museum's 2012 "Rudin Prize For Emerging Photographers".[10]

Saban's work has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and are represented in the collections of the Allen Memorial Art Museum of Oberlin College, the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, the Hammer Museum at UCLA in Los Angeles, Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Norton Museum of Art in Florida, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
