"Last May 12, Joseph Beuys would have been 100 years old. I think back to a century, to this century, and it is inevitable to think of the similarities that occurred then. 100 years ago there was also a pandemic,after that, those "happy" twenties, followed by a strange "boom" of ultra right-wing politics, continuing with a tremendous economic crash and the culmination of wars, world war and in Spain, we already had a civil war to encourage the nonsense. Many things are repeated, others are similar and others I don’t even want to imagine. I think back to Beuys’ 100 years and I think I want to believe how human beings have an incredible capacity to mutate and transform. This man, before going into a gallery to talk to a coyote, before explaining to a dead hare what an image is, was a pilot in the Luftwaffe, the air squadron of the Nazi armed forces. This man had to crash his plane and fall into a deep depression to realize that the values of life were elsewhere. His initial position, we do not know whether through unconsciousness, ignorance or madness, he transformed it as an alchemical exercise: as when he melted the replica of a Tsar’s crown and in doing so reforested Kassel from barbarism. Hopefully, in this century, even if it seems that we are losing our memory, it is not too late and we do not need to crash to remember that the beauty of transformation will always bet on life.
Tribute to the centenary of the birth of Joseph Beuys 100years."
Carla Cañellas situates her work on the construction of identity in different social contexts, investigating especially the manipulated environment of what we could call social engineering. She explores the artistic exercise through a work of questioning, criticism, education and transformation of society. Her work is interested in the identity portrait created through a dialogue with the spectator, understanding the final construction of the story by the audience . In 2018 she published her first book "Detenidos", a self-edition about the consequences of the economic crisis in the Spanish society that is accompanied by an educational & didactic annex.
She also develops her work by carrying out projects through collective
collaboration and complementing them with educational workshops.
Since 2006 she is a member of the collective "Fotoeduterapia":
A group of different professionals working to integrate contents, strategies
and ways of seeing contemporary photographic creation and apply them in education, art therapy, psychotherapy and social intervention.
She has carried out different individual and collective exhibitions
in Europe and Japan. She lives and works in Madrid.
