Cristina Arrazola-Oñate

Monographic presentation

The experimental route, art research, is a territory where it is possible to make certain displacements of meaning and certain alterations to the images, to the aesthetics and to the policies of women’s visibility that ultimately lead to a questioning of rigid models like that of film genres, on which audiovisual production from both visual and conceptual perspectives is based.

Cristina Arrazola-Oñate (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 1965). She graduated with a Degree in Advertising from the University of the Basque Country and then went on to study Audiovisual Language and Digital Editing Techniques. From 1991 to 1996, she taught at the Centro de Imagen y Nuevas Tecnologías (CINT) in Vitoria-Gasteiz. She has worked as an editor in the firms Signo Digital (Bilbao, 2001) and European Virtual Engineering (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 2005), and undertook technical support duties in editing and production for Fundación Rodríguez (1994-2012). As a freelancer, she worked on video editing with the artists Estíbaliz Sádaba, Marcelo Expósito, Miriam Isasi, Arturo/Fito Rodríguez, Txaro Arrazola and Gabriel Villota. She was a member of Asamblea Amarika from its formation until its dissolution (2008-2012) and, during that time, she was responsible for producing exhibitions for Álava Provincial Council’s three galleries. Since 2008, she has worked on Inmersiones, the annual congress of emerging artists. She is currently working within the Erakusmeta collective on the programme for Zas Kultur Espazioa in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
