Rosalía Banet

Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the Faculty of Pontevedra, Spain, 1996
Doctor’s degree in Fine Arts from the Faculty of Pontevedra, Spain, 2003

From my work I try to analyze, reflect and criticize society. I try to show their excesses and inequalities. I use the human body and its diseases as metaphors to represent a chaotic system, alienating and dehumanized. Food is another constant in my projects. The food system serves as a vehicle for me to represent the hyper-consumist society with all its horrors. And to eat today, is just not only nourishment, it involves issues beyond the purely nutritional, social, political, economic and environmental.
