Mireia Sallarès is an artist and independent filmaker. Studied Fine Arts at the Universitat de Barcelona and film at the New School University and the Film & Video Arts, in New York. She lives between Barcelona and other cities, where she carries out her artistic projects. Sallarès uses video as an anthropological and sociological research tool, but also as a narrative instrument capable of producing stories based on the complexity of reality. The status of being a foreign is fundamental in their jobs that are the result of long field research on essential issues such as violence, death, sex, legality, truth, love or work. Her process is an indispensable part of the content, involving people from their uniqueness and in struggle against the construction of the subjectivity of dominant discourses. At the end the result incorporates multiple formats and languages: from films to photographs, audios, installations, interventions in the public space, texts or publications. She has exhibited at the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona; Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Mexico City; American Society, New York; Organización Nelson Garrido, Caracas; Centro Cultural Montehermoso, Vitoria; Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art, Gdansk (Poland); Galleri Image d’Aarhus (Denmark); OK Centrum, Linz (Austria); and the Capella MACBA, Barcelona, among others.
