Javier Peñafiel

Birth placeSpain Birth date1964

Peñafiel’s work roots from a deep interest in contemporary thought and suggests the audience to reflect critically on the loss of innocence of the individual in our contemporary society. Clear examples are his video installation Maltrato, displayed at ‘La Caixa’ Foundation in 1997, which explored through poetic imagery the difficulties of personal communication. His project Tragedia de las corporaciones is also a sample of the artist’s constant concern regarding the political condition of the individual.

Recently, he has carried out several solo exhibitions from which we can highlight Agencia en Avenir - No tots visibles res transparent (2017) in Arts Santa Monica in Barcelona where he conveys the failed past utopias of humankind and travels through our social contemporary reality.
