Eulàlia Garcia Valls

Long-term residency

August 2019 - April 2022

Eulalia Garcia Valls. Barcelona, 1992.

The specific interventions (in specific places and moments) that shape the practice of Eulalia Garcia Valls seek to tighten the relationship between the context where they are located and the behavior we adopt within it. They work as an addition or extension (add-on) to a concrete daily experience that wants to alter, question, move. They are hardly perceptible transformations that provoke a state of rethinking, negotiation and discomfort among the elements involved in the environment where they are posed.

She focuses her interest on understanding and responding to certain intrinsic structures of the art system. For this reason he works directly on the context, the space where we live, its elements and its skin, understanding that acting on the space and the structures that form it allows us to alter (or affect) the behavior we have within it, and therefore, to question it. To articulate this gesture, the tools she uses are tension, provocation, perplexity, strangeness and contradiction. She works from the existing, with immersive proposals, specific in relation to temporality and the place where she carries out each project.

Eulalia Garcia Valls graduated in Arts and Design from the Massana School (Barcelona) and is currently a resident at the center for research and artistic production in Hangar (Barcelona, from 2019 to 2021).
