Known for her performances, video works, drawings, photography, and interactive sculptural installations, Pilar Albarracín chooses symbols of popular culture and adopts a specific stance towards them, using imagery thick with timeworn clichés and thus also opening dialogues that question their authenticity. Her focus is on the cultural construction of Spanish identity, especially that of the Spanish woman, and her representations are often highly theatrical and full of parodies. Like the exhibition at CAC Málaga, this catalogue presents a selection of moments in Albarracín’s recent work. Seemingly disparate in nature, the works are united by their didactic nature.
