h i e r  &  j e t z t  

Born in Buenos Aires in 1981. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

She works in the fields of photography (mainly analog), with a fondness for collage and video, focusing her practice on self-referential documentation as a key tool to study, understand and intervene in their immediate environment. She has been a resident at The Pajama Factory (USA) and ( ) Parenthesis Space Parenthesis (France-Slovenia-Germany).
Her work has been shown in different galleries and cultural spaces, such as in Wolterholme Projects (Liverpool, UK), Stattberlin (Berlin, Germany), Hilbert Raum (Berlin, Germany, Bricks Gallery (Hamburg, Germany), Fiebre Galeria (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Rare Tempo (Denver, USA) and MMCA (Barcelona, Spain).
As Cultural Manager, works in the production and curation of her projects, The Berta ART Raffle and Photo Club Berlin.
In 2013 together with artist Juan Arata, founded the duo Arnejo Corata, since 2016 member of HilbertRaum, an independent, non-commercial, artist-run project space in Berlin, Germany.



The instant, the opportunity, the circumstances defining the Moment: a three-dimensional figure that determines something unrepeatable; ephemeral events we are unable to experience completely. There is something in Eli Cornejo's photography reminding us about constant and perpetual movement, for what it is important for her is the path and not the outcome. Her photos are like journeys through cities as real and as imaginary. The inhabitants could be humans, machines, animals or ghosts or whatever the observer chooses them to be.  Eli Cornejo's quest is the self-world quest, the natural aesthetics and the self-documentation; a quest that does not pretend to be complex, nor obvious.
