Second solo exhibition of Marria Pratts in Everyday Gallery
OPENING THURSDAY 18 MAY 12 TILL 9 PM
Marria Pratts (1988, Barcelona) is a multidisciplinary self-thought artist whose practice exudes an uninhibited and spontaneous spirit. Her work can be read as a defiance of our social structures and the challenges of living in places under the constant threat of gentrification. Pratts mixes the language of graffiti with millennial references and notions of punk in order to communicate her discomfort with the fragile and artificial landscape that defines our capitalist society. Pratt's multi-canvas installations float away from the wall and off the floor, adding to the buoyant dynamism of the artist's unabashed brushstrokes,spray lines, scribbles, metal plates, and burn holes. A continuous streak of pink links the canvases and recurring ubiquitous ghosts emerge as representatives of encounters from her meanderings through the city. Other than installation, her artistic output includes a repertoire of decidedly varied formats such as drawing, painting, sculpture, carpets, furniture, and fanzines.
