Alicia Kopf’s intervention Seal Sounds Under The Floor in Galería Joan Prats owes its context to the project Àrticantartic. The latter deals with the so called “heroic age” of polar expeditions spanning from the late XIX century to the early XX, coinciding with the birth of photography and cinema.

 

The aim of this research is to work from the appropriation and the reshaping of graphical and narrative documents of the polar explorers, turning a historical account into a first person narrative concerning resistance, obsession and the idea of conquest.

 

 

Alicia Kopf presented the individual exhibition “Maneres de (no) entrar a casa“ (ways of (not) entering home) in el Bòlit La Rambla, Girona (2011) and has participated in group shows in CCCB, Barcelona (2013); Fundació Atrium Artis, Les Bernardes, Salt, Girona (2012); Caixaforum, Barcelona, and BIAM (Bienal d’Art d’Amposta), Tarragona (2008), among others. She has received numerous recognitions such as the 2013Art Jove prize awarded by the Generalitat de Catalunya (2013); the Kreas grant for cultural and artistic projects from the Girona City Hall (2011).
