The specific interventions (in specific places and moments) that make up the practice of Eulàlia Garcia Valls seek to strengthen the relationship between the context in which they are located and the behavior that we adopt within it. They work as an add-on or extension (add-on) to a specific daily experience that you want to alter, question, move. They are intentionally not very noticeable, and basically used them to trigger a state of negotiation between the agents and the elements that are involved.
Focus on your interest in understanding and responding to certain intrinsic structures of the art system. It is for this reason that it works directly on the context, the space where we live, its elements and its skin, understanding that acting on the space and the structures that make it allow us to alter (or affect) the behavior that we have inside of him, and therefore, to question his conformation.
To articulate this gesture, the tools it uses are tension, provocation, perplexity and contradiction. And to a material level, the interventions that carry out are transformations on surfaces or behaviors, transports and displacements, losses and emptinesses, gestures that become activated when they are experienced.
