" 他者所见 " 展现了艺术家艾登·巴雷纳(Edén Barrena)近四年的五个创作系列。巴雷纳的系列绘画是她作为“他者”和观察者对于陌生与未知的探索工具。

巴雷纳的艺术创作一直在探讨自我和他者的关系,对于两者碰撞而来的疏离感与矛盾感充满兴趣。“旅行”是巴雷纳艺术创作的关键词,在旅途中的她时刻保持着一个"他者"的新奇。她从不排斥陌生的环境和文化,相反地,她通过版画,手绘,动画和她独特的文献式图像来体现面对未知的迷失感与冲突感,并向观众传达她所体验的惊奇感。她的作品通过对不同机制的呈现,反思了主体与客体,她用绘画练习如何表现“未知”。

高速的发展让都市场景瞬息万变,随着城市流动性的增加,生活在其中的我们也不得不时常感受身为他者或是面对他者的疏离感。巴雷纳的作品为我们提供了一个解决方案,她关注城市中最微不足道的事务,用轻便的绘画工具,和最朴素的表现手法来探索未知,找到记忆中似曾相识的亲切感。

艾登·巴雷纳工作并生活在上海。毕业于马德里康普顿斯大学美术系,大学期间曾在斯图加特国立造型艺术学院交换学习,后进入伦敦皇家艺术学院深造,获得版画艺术硕士学位。


Evidence of Magic presents five series of work by Edén Barrena. Barrena finds in her practice a tool to observe and analyze phenomena that is unfamiliar to her.

Edén Barrena is interested in the relationship between the self and the other, and the estrangement and conflicts generated by this encounter. By unfolding different mechanisms, her work reflects on the edges of subjectivity, travel, discovery, and representation of the unknown through the exercise of drawing.

Traveling is a crucial element of her creative practice since it positions the artist in the roles of the outsider and the other, experimenting first-hand the displacement of the foreigner. She uses print, drawing, animation and archival imagery to collect these confrontations and transmit the amazement to the viewer.

Edén Barrena was born in Badajoz, Spain, in 1991. She had studied fine art in German and Spain and got her MFA in Printmaking in the Royal College of Art in London.
