Paratext #63 with Aldo Urbano Perez, Julia Varela and Rosa Llop

This name, Paratext, hides a monthly program of performances by artists in residence at Hangar as well as artists on exchange grants. They present, in different formats, specific projects or parts of their work. The sessions are always open to the public with the purpose of enabling interaction with the artists themselves. Each Paratext also has an editor who will later publish his or her impressions of the presentation on this blog.

The next Paratext session will take place on Wednesday, April 27 at 6 p.m. in Hangar’s Sala Ricson.

On this occasion, Antonio Gagliano and Carolina Jiménez will be the editors.

Projects will be presented by:

Aldo Urbano Perez (Long-term residency)

Aldo Urbano Perez has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona. In his work he creates enigmas whose ultimate meaning escapes him, especially himself. Through painting, he investigates the mechanisms of perception in search of a renovating experience, creating installations in which this type of experience may be possible. His work also drifts towards drawing and writing, with which he adopts narrative forms similar to comics in which irony and humour are present.

Julia Varela (Long-term residency)

Julia Varela is an artist working in film, installation, and sculpture. Her work revolves around society’s consumption of images and what we choose to see. She has been working on the subject of screen vision and media in several series of works as well as body constrictions and social space.

Julia uses materials that allow her to preserve the physical staging in which to execute and mediatize emotions. The works she proposes are performances that, if they do not become objects, disappear. She starts from oral testimonies, translations, ephemeral events and electronic and waste materials.

Rosa Llop (Long-term residency)

Rosa Llop is a designer, teacher, author and researcher. Her professional and artistic practice responds to the need to question the constructs that delimit and pre-define the role of the designer in post-digital society. Rosa uses research as a strategy to observe contemporaneity, paying special attention to creative processes and politics of representation.


The event will be held following all security measures.

Attendance is free and will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
