Cristóbal Gracia

My practice reshapes historical milestones and social and cultural phenomena through the investigation, connection and reconstruction of official chronicles, microhistories and urban myths. Using tools such as humor, fiction, violence, desire and failure, my work aims to build baroque systems of disbelief in order to create the space and means of production needed for culturing different subjectivities. In my process of work I involve different creative agents, every participation, collaboration and context of production gives a unique specificity to each project. ​​ I tend to search for the tensions that art can create when working with dichotomies and contradictions belonging to different fields of knowledge, in this dialectical process lies the opportunity to contemplate and interpret life under a different light.
