Anna MALAGRIDA

Presentation

Since the late ‘90s, Anna Malagrida, acclaimed Spanish contemporary artist, has developed video and photography work with impressive consistency. The window, the endless subject for many of her series, represents the passage from an intimate universe to the exterior world. It depicts frontiers in the literal sense (video Fronteras, 2009) figuratively suggesting absence and presence, the visible and the invisible, reality and its interpretation. Anna Malagrida tackles with great poetic delicacy controversial subjects such as war, politics, and women in the Middle East, while subtly working with direction and playing with light and chiaroscuro, confusing the pictorial gesture as an artist who transcends photographic and video media into so-called “classic” art.
