The key point the artist Carmela García’s (Lanzarote, 1964) works is the double need to rethink and to change the world. To carry it out from a gender perspective is not just a simple way of projecting the need for another future; but it means, in the first instance, a vindication scenario of a different consideration of the feminine in the world.

Under these assumptions, Carmela García relies on formal and iconic resources to highlight the paradox and the difficulty of the paradigm shift, experiencing a need to reevaluate the history construction, to re-read the stories on which the imaginary has been constructed. Furthermore, establishing a new references order in the articulation, as well as the construction of a radically different daily life in operative and symbolic terms.

Reason why, as will be reflected in this exhibition, her work unfolds as an exercise that develops both from the social relations history between women and an ongoing fiction that offers us oblique visions of personal contact, affinities and love between them…
