The exhibition by Maria Pratts for this edition of LOOP Festival offers an overview of the artist’s latest video works and shows the two videos that were exhibited in the travelling exhibition curated by David G. Torres, “Punk. Its Traces in Contemporary Art” (MACBA, Barcelona, CA2M, Madrid, Artium Museum, Vitoria, and Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico).
An ultra-multidisciplinary worker in Barcelona’s underground scene, Maria Pratts uses her work to talk about a decaying world and shows the habits and stereotypes of her surroundings. A strong, loud and ironic speech that has the street as its main backdrop. A critical art that maintains a hopeful and optimistic energy through powerful colours, a naive style and the spontaneity of her topics.
