Carla Cañellas

Carla Cañellas's art is, as a matter of fact, an in-depth investigation into the identity’s construction and on the interferences that it inevitably encounters.

The social rules, the silent coup accomplished by mass media, the countless forms of censorship allowed for “the sake of progress”: these are the topics addressed in her work. The artist is a modern warrior, fighting in the longest-lived and most powerful army that history recalls: Art. 

Video art, painting, photography, artist's books, whatever is the medium used, she always pursues a precise aim: to portray the resigned, disturbing marriage of contemporary mankind and its skeletons, now definitively out of the closet.
