Carla Andrade

Through Photography, Video, Film, Sound and Installation, she exposes her own language-reality

Lives and Works in Vigo (Spain).

Carla Andrade is a Visual Artist from Spain with a Degree in Audio-visual Studies and Philosophy. This intersection between the means of visual expression and a field close to reflection is precisely one of the defining facets of her work. Travel is also an inherent characteristic of his creation process, that’s why she carried out Artist Residencies in Iceland, Sweden, Nepal, Chile, and Paris, among others.

Through Photography, Video, Film, Sound and Installation, she exposes her own language-reality with the aim of generating content and thought by the aesthetic experience and altered states of consciousness. She uses the “elimination” and the “denial” as a method to return to the most primitive and unconscious; a direct experience without the necessity of illuminating with the reason, in order to situate herself in a kind of resistance to the dictatorship of the structures and patterns that are pre-established.
