Vilafranca del Penedès, 1963
A pioneer in a multidisciplinary way of production, her work is based on the phenomenon of light In her installations, performances and photos she creates psychological spaces using everyday objects to make us confront our psychic darkness. Still focusing on this perceptive phenomenon, she is recently experiencing a paradigm shift by deciding to work with sunlight and expanding her activities to the study of subtle bodies that make up beings and things.
Through drawing and the word, she proposes trips to the soul in the form of video-messages, giving voice to natural entities and practising psychic archaeology to read the memory of spaces, beings and historical objects. She carries out performances in altered states of consciousness in museums (Los otros invisibles, Thyssen and Museo Picasso, 2019), mythical ruins (Plastic Mantra, 2016) and temples (Nave Nodriza, Bologna 2020), in works where her body becomes an antenna and anchor of a new language to intervene between the different strata of our reality. In her mass Drawing and Energy sessions, she monitors and channels the drawings of participants, categorising their current artistic work as a form of activist mysticism.
Present in a multitude of international biennial exhibitions since the 90s, she represented our country when she was still unknown. Her retrospective, presented at the Tàpies Foundation in Barcelona in 2001, was the most visited exhibition of that year, and she received the Nacional de Artes plásticas catalán award. It was followed by Museo Reina Sofía (2009), in which she presented an innovative sound project, which consisted of interactive cleaning product containers that digitally emitted voices and offered to erase any events that one did not wish to remember, but first reproducing and recording them in their inside, initiating a participatory or co-creative attitude of understanding the artistic practice.
