Lives and works in Barcelona
Since 1990, Eulàlia Valldosera has developed a multidisciplinary body of work employing ink, photography,
performance, installations, video and light projections. Using these media she often recreates dramatised mise
en scènes that at once capture presence and absence, memory and desire. The highly evocative and formally
impeccable work of this artist explores issues of woman’s identity as an intellectual subject, focusing on notions
of sexual identity, the everyday, love, illness and motherhood, often using her own body as starting point for her creations.
The focus can also shift from the body to the objects that surround it. Objects are transformed into `social mediators´
in her installations: they say something about the culture, the desire, the emotions and the daily life of the people
who acquired them. The light brings with it a dark side, the hidden meaning of the objects on the surface.
In Eulàlia Valldosera's world, the shadows, as anti-objects, refer to a collective subconscious.
Valldosera has had significant solo shows at Witte de With, Rotterdam; Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid;
Kunsthalle Lophem, Brugge; Museé d’Art Contemporain de Montréal and Fundacio Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona.
She has participated in many international biennials such as Lyon, Venice, Istanbul, Sydney and São Paulo.
Her work is in private and public collections including MACBA, Museo Reina Sofía, Deutsche Bank, La Caixa,
Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, MUSAC, FRAC PACA, Maison Européenne de la Photographie and Grand-Hornu, Belgium.
