Joan Morey

1972, Mallorca


Joan Morey holds a BA and a DEA in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona. His artistic practice mainly focuses on the language of the performance, generating events, mises en scènes, environments or specific interventions that give place (or not) to derivative works. The backbone of his discourse is the unorthodox relationship between “Master / Slave” – which goes from the dialectic of the master and the slave as in Hegel to the sub-cultural practices “BDSM” -and the devices of power, with the objective to review them through artistic performance. Consequently, such mechanisms are used for the reconstruction of visual, oral and written proposals that reflect on ideology, religion or politics, in their multiple aspects.
