Clara Nubiola IN RESiDENCE at the School Salvador Espriuhttp://www.claranubiola.com
Clara Nubiola (Barcelona, 1976) focuses her interest on the territory. Through her artistic practice, she develops projects where she can approach the world we live in from a critical, subjective perspective. Urban, rural and bordering areas, the outskirts, urban planning, etc. Since 2011, she has carried out various projects, actions and training programmes in a number of cities and municipalities (including Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Olot, Granada and Seville). Her projects showcase the practice of simplicity and familiar things, with installations and activities carried out specifically within the geographical framework in which she is working, using austere tools such as walking, ink and paper. She shies away from absolute truths or infinite theories, preferring to approach the landscape through direct involvement, from a perspective of being open to doubt.
She has a degree in Graphic Design from Elisava. She did a Masters in Social and Cultural Anthropology (UB) and a postgraduate course in Territorial Architecture (UPC), but a lot of other things have also happened. She is currently working on a project for Catalunya Central, with the geographer Rosa Cerarols. The aim is to create a holistic narrative of the territory based on cartography where, using salt as a guiding thread and identifying element of a landscape that used to be the sea, the singular features that identify it are called into question.
