Anna Malagrida (Barcelona, 1970).
Lives and works between Paris and Barcelona.
Anna Malagrida essentially uses photography and video in order to explore and recreate our everyday life experience and the unsteady equilibrium between the private and the public through an attentive observation. The artist leaves representation behind and calls for our fantasy instead—we are invited to project ourselves onto the surfaces of her images and to create our own visual contents inside and outside them. As if by its own gravity, the city becomes a theatre stage, the ideal backdrop where to retell the fragile relationship between people and their environment. The artist first evaluates and afterwards invites us to look without being seen. It is from a lucid and unpretentious gaze that Anna Malagrida’s work seduces, reconciles and places the viewer between the visible and the invisible.
