Tere Recarens will be curating the activity around her own work Baharestan carpet (Spring carpet), which is currently included in the exhibition MACBA Collection. Prelude. Poetic intention. Tere Recarens is an inter-active artist based in Berlin and Barcelona. Her work follows a path of exploration. She begins by immersing herself in cultures and languages that she does not know before returning to the community an ephemeral piece of art that invites the viewer to become part of it. Without the visitor, the work is not complete. Fun, anger and other expressions of emotion are essential to her approaches.

The exhibition MACBA Collection: Prelude: Poetic intention presents Baharestan carpet, painted on cardboard, which tells us stories and legends of Iran. On the other side of the carpet, Shahnaz Hadinya’s work The bride of Iran appears. Like a garden of paradise, this carpet is designed to be activated together with the Iranian community in Barcelona and its surroundings.

The programme Let’s talk about… generates discussions on the Museum’s exhibitions between the different agents and artists in the city and our regular public. It is a meeting point that regards exhibitions as powerful devices capable of activating the imagination and generators of discourses that often go beyond the preconceived readings of the institution or the curatorial team.

Tere Recarens
Barcelona
1967
Tere Recarens was born in Arbúcies (Girona) in 1967. Having studied at the Escola Massana, Barcelona, the École supérieure d’art, Grenoble, and the École supérieure d’art et de design, Marseilles, she now lives and works in Berlin. Her interdisciplinary production includes drawing, words, photography, video and installation, employing everyday language and a sense of humour. The idea of travel is important to her work, understood not only as a physical and geographic journey, but also as the emotional and relational voyage that travelling entails. In this sense, her life and travels have always provided the material for her work; including such scenarios as Bamako, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin and Tehran. Recarens generates a kind of self-portraiture based on her ability to adapt to and read the immediate environment and the relationships she establishes with others. Sometimes she plays with language, at other times with elements of material culture such as fabrics, but always using her own experiences to approach the notions of identity and belonging. Since the nineties, she has continuously exhibited in galleries and institutions such as Espai 13 of the Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (1994), Centre d’art contemporain, Valence (1997), Parker’s Box, New York (2003), Arts Santa Mònica, Barcelona (2004), Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Malaga (2006), FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon (2011) and Art At Work, Turin (2014).
