MARIONA MONCUNILL. IN RESIDENCE at the Juan Manuel Zafra Secondary School

From six to six. What is not seen Project


Mariona Moncunill holds a degree in Fine Art and a Master’s Degree in Cultural Management from the University of Barcelona and is currently completing her PhD in the Open University of Barcelona’s Information and Knowledge Society programme. She took part of her studies at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague.

Her work focuses on analysis of discourses and conventions, as well as on ways of creating symbolic value. To this end, she usually develops specific and contextual projects on, for example, the exhibition space and museography, journalistic infographics, library science and its knowledge management, the theatricality of an emergency drill and the construction of the idea of nature in parks and botanical gardens, among others. Her projects, which are characterised by processes of negotiation and mimicry, are created using photography, video, narration, documentation, publication and intervention as the usual formats.

In recognition of her work, Mariona Moncunill has received such accolades as the Generación 2014 Prize (2013), the Ramón Acín Fine Art Grant (2011), the Guasch Coranty Foundation Grant for Artistic Creation (2010) and the Miquel Casablancas Prize (2008). She has also received residency grants from HIAP (Helsinki, 2013) and Rupert (Vilnius, 2013). She has presented solo and group shows at Espai 13 (Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona, 2012), Convent dels Àngels (MACBA, Barcelona, 2014), Espai Cultural Caja Madrid (Barcelona, 2010), Gallery Augusta (Helsinki, 2013), Lo Pati Art Centre (Amposta, 2013) and Arts Santa Mònica (Barcelona, 2013), among others.
