Inés Ballesteros is a visual artist whose work unfolds in different media. In her practice she researches how articulations of public space that tend to control and privatisation are contested trough temporary infiltrations or re-aproppiations, looking at the tensions and negotiations that are inherent to collective processes and to public space.
She concluded the MA for Art and Design for Public space of the Faculdade das Belas Artes do Porto in 2018 and previously she studied a Bachelor in Graphic Design in the E.S.D.A in Zaragoza.
Her practice as an artist has been developed in intersection with her participation in activism and self-organise projects and spaces of Spain, Portugal, and Belgium. She’s currently living and organising with other artists the artist run-space Samenschool located in Borgerhout, Antwerp.
In 2020 she initiated with Michela Dal Brollo the project ‘Stone Soup’, that has been supported by Kunstenplatform Plan B and it has its continuation in their research project ‘Living equipment: portable spaces’ in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp.
