Inula [Mcarmen G.Mahedero] IN RESiDENCE at the School Montjuïc

Inula (MCarmen G. Mahedero [Badajoz, 1980]) is a visual artist and researcher focused on the relationships existing between the plant world and society. Her creations observe the narrative possibilities of the environment and work with the landscape as a place that codifies the universe of ecological, historic, perceptive and cultural relations. She reviews values that are associated with it, highlighting the lack of empathy we have developed regarding the environment we live in from the biophysical and cultural perspective. Her works derive projects designed for dissemination, raising of awareness and education in the landscape looking to the future.

After graduating in Fine Arts, she took a Master’s degree in Artistic Creations, during which she obtained a grant as a researcher. This began her interest in research as part of the creative process which, in 2020, led her to obtain the “Grant for research and innovation in the field of arts”, from the Generalitat Government of Catalonia. Recently, she has enjoyed various artists residences, she has collaborated with Bombas Gens Art Centre and her work has been displayed in museums such as the MEIAC, Museum Quartier or Cineteca in Madrid. Her most recent project is in the Rural Life Museum of the Carulla Foundation, a work resulting from the collaboration with territorial agents during part of 2021. She works here and there.
