In the early seventies, following on from Arte Povera, the actions of Fina Miralles developed as a reflection on the materiality of nature. Her first actions placed her among a group of Catalan Conceptual artists concerned with nature, involving elements such as trees, earth, water and the artist’s own body. Most of her work was based on the dialectic between nature and artifice through a change in the context of physical elements. With great simplicity and forcefulness, she emphasized the dialogue between nature and artifice, while displaying a social and political critique in the context of the end of the Franco era, touching on themes of totalitarianism, patriarchy and violence.
