Mireia Sallarès Casas

Mireia Sallarès (Barcelona, 1973) lives between Barcelona and other foreign cities where she develops her artistic practice.Being a foreigner is an essential register in her field research that is the result of long term projects on such essential topics as violence, death, pleasure, legality, truth or love; that she defines as battle grounds.The process of creating her works is an indispensable part of the content that involves people from their uniqueness to question the apparatus of construction of the dominant discourses in our society. The notion of “lived life” is the axis on which her artistic practice is articulated and she states: What is truly monumental is the life who has been lived. UNESCO should declare it a human right and protect it as a world heritage. The lived life cannot be an individual right because life who has been lived links us all, even the living and the dead.” Sallarès is currently developing the Trilogy of Trash Concepts; prolonged researches into life in relation to the doubtful political prestige of concepts such as truth, love and work.Video of The Little Deaths (Las Muertes Chiquitas) project

The book mentioned in the interview is Kill All Normies.

  1. Hola, vi la entrevista a la guapísima Mireia y luego el trailer de “las muertes chiquitas” . La verdad es una de esas cosas que se agradecen por estar y existir en las redes y me imagino que próximamente en las grandes pantallas.

    Hay frases para tomar en cuenta: soy todo lo que nadie quiere ser:pobre e indígena” y “Dios debe estar en las sabanas” -por aquello de la Espiritu Santa, jaja.

    Excelente abordaje de sexualidad-sociedad-psiquis de la mujer.
