Eulàlia Grau (b. 1946, Terrassa) is one of the pioneers of feminist art in Spain. She works primarily in the medium of collage (in recent times photo and video collage) to send a strong social and political message, often uses juxtaposition in which she places symbols of poverty, crime and injustice beside icons of popular culture.
Eulàlia sends us two collages reflecting her current living situation in Barcelona, Spain. Spain is currently the most affected European country by the COVID-19 pandemic. Titled “My Neighbors, from the Window of My Confinement in Barcelona”, her two collages describe her current daily routine during the pandemic, when she is “trapped” in her apartment.
"Artists Respond" project was started by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection. Addressing the current global pandemic, the project aims to virtually present the thoughts and attitudes of neo-avant-garde artists, their energy and the message they have for the present moment. This is the moment in which the world as we know it is on hold and the moment in which we need optimism and solidarity more than ever. We wish for the public to welcome the creative energy of these artists - artists who are ready to point out the state of things, to respond with art and creativity, as they have done in all difficult times in the past.
Eulàlia Grau was a participant of our "Artist on Vacation" project in 2018, organised by the Institute for the Research of the Avant-Garde and the Marinko Sudac Collection, with Valamar All You Can Holiday in whose facilities they reside in Poreč.
