Claudia Pagés

Artist, Guest

Claudia Pagés Rabal (1990, Barcelona) is a visual artist based in Amsterdam and Barcelona. Her artistic practice spins a linguistic web of micro-narratives, queer poetry and rhythmic speech as she explores the possibilities of staging the voice through music and the presence of bodies. She is particularly interested in systems of distribution, circulation and consumption, whether by considering the commodities sold in Barcelona’s Eixample district in Rates i cuques (2020) or by looking at the second-hand trade at Els Encants, the city’s flea market, in Gleaners–Extracción (2018–2019). Claudia Pagès has a BA in Fine Arts from the Universitat de Barcelona (2013) and an MA in Fine Arts from the Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam (2016). Her solo exhibitions and performances include Un rastro involuntario, La Casa Encendida, Madrid (2021); dis- des- duress. tris-tras, giro, fallo, àngels barcelona (2021), and Patio de luces, Yaby, Madrid (2020). She has taken part in several group exhibitions, including Lifting Belly, CentroCentro, Madrid (2020), and is currently a resident at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam (2020–2021).
