Nathalie Rey is a French artist based in Barcelona, and Enric Maurí is a Catalan artist living in Cardedeu (Barcelona). They both develop individual multidisciplinary practices that sometimes collide, resulting in collaborative projects that include installations, photography, video and performance.
Environmental concerns, globalization processes and their impact on natural, social and cultural ecologies, the use of autobiographical references, humor and micro stories are some of the things both artists have in common.
During their collaboration of two years, the project “The conspiratorial artist” stands out, and has been one of the main research points for Rey and Maurí during their residency in GlogauAIR. This work offers a renewed look at the destabilizing role of the artist and their contribution throughout history in building a critical voice against retrograde and totalitarian thinking. For this project, their process consists of parodying a selection of works that have been - or could have been - censored. Through the construction of meta-discourses, both artists seek for a relationship between past and current languages and contexts.
