Clara Pallí Monguilod's practice is metaphorically shaped by a conversation between five characters.
The first one, the philosopher. She is preoccupied with the finite quality of things and how to live more fully, questioning structures that dictate how things ‘should’ be.
The second, the illusionist. Using disorienting tricks, she reveals obscure connections between events from past, present and future. She replicates opaque ways in which narratives are constructed, moved by a desire to understand.
The third character, the surrealist. She is fascinated by the potential of the strange to come to new meaning, questioning the norm.
The fourth one, the mystic. She looks for the significance of things, embracing mystery and spirituality, while grounded in an earthly realm.
And finally, the artist, exploring what role art can play in all these wonderings.
