Begoña Egurbide Margañón
His work is linked to poetry, the unconscious, the sight, the painting and the digital tools; his first works investigate the relationship between word and image insisting on the connections between the mental, the visual and the contents of thought translated into language.
As of 1993 he incorporates photography, video and new technologies into visual experimentation. He is interested in the construction of consciousness, access to memory, the instability of emotions, and the relationship between the imaginary, the symbolic and the real.
In 2001 the Learning project began, which addresses the different narrative levels generated by the changes generated in memory, and the distance with which we remember our own experience. This project is gestated in the intuition of a universe lost forever in the womb, in which childhood, youth, maturity and old age remain embedded to manifest themselves in pieces at any time. Experimentation focuses on lenticularity, a technique that in some way originates an effect of open time, of a broken, cracked story, which allows the image to be read as an accumulation of instants, outside conscious control, or as a single instant. sustained.
In 2010 begins the project on contemporary migrations, Otro Lugar, a collaboration between Mexico and Barcelona.
Between 2015 and 2018 he works on two interlinked projects, The Oceanic Gaze and Acrobatic Texts. The first focuses on the flows that link desire and society; the second, emphasizes the subordination of difference to identity. Both insist on the differential limits of human activity that face identity to culture, and on the power relations that are established in language.
At the same time, it is developing a collaborative project in the space LA CERA 13, where a group of young artists and creators have the possibility to experiment and act without the pressures of the market.
In August 2018, an accident left him unable to use his hands for six months, which allowed him to investigate desertification and the limits of the welfare society.
The LOS OJOS AZULES project begins, focused on the consequences and contradictions that the desire for wellbeing and disdain for ecosystems are causing the environment and in which it is currently working.
