Ignacio Bahna (Santiago, Chile, 1980) lives and works in Santiago.

The work of Ignacio Bahna is based on the observation and living experience of the artist with his natural environment. Chile is well known for its landscapes, the Andes, the glaciers and the volcanoes that surround the whole territory.  This sublime inmensity is a cultural heritage for chilean people, and it’s a prominent part of the reflection of the artistic circle. Ignacio’s work reflects this strict relation and impossible division between human life and nature, a bond that indigenous communities know very well and that nowadays is challenged and at high risk of extinction for climate change. All the materials of his installations and works of art are recollected from his personal trekkings and excursion discoveries in the south of Chile, where he has an Observatory center near the Villarrica volcano.
