Magdalena Orellana lives and works in Madrid. She studied at the University of Design, Architecture & Urbanism of Buenos Aires, and at ECAM (Madrid), where she received a diploma in documentary filmmaking. In 2020, she finished a postgraduate course in Filmmaking studies at Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola (University of the Basque Country, Donostia-San Sebastián).
Interested in the possible crossings between fiction and non-fiction, her works try to explore through different media (such as film and design) the hybrid and indecipherable of each day.
She has participated in different artist residencies such as the Collaborative Studio of UnionDocs (New York), Artists in Residence (CA2M, La Casa Encendida), Summer Sessions of V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media (Rotterdam) in collaboration with Hangar (Barcelona), MRG Work (Márgenes FF, Madrid).
Some of her works have been shown at The Film-Makers' Coop (NY), Círculo de Bellas Artes (Madrid), Cineteca (Madrid), La Casa Encendida (Madrid), MediaLab Prado (Madrid), BilbaoArte (Bilbao), CCCB (Barcelona), Tabakalera (Donostia), Sala de Arte Joven de la Comunidad de Madrid, among others.

LecturesHangar – Yup, modern sensibility [remote]Editorial work
Ongoing research project
2021Barcelona, SpainYup, modern sensibility is a tiny 76-page manual that will hopefully help you navigate any IKEA store. The title was taken from IKEA’s own 2019 annual catalog and is far from being a closed statement: it actually questions what IKEA could possibly mean by “modern sensibility” or if there’s any sensibility left at all in a time when we all probably own the same set of chairs that matches our table inside a space we like to call home.https://hangar.org/en/
