This is a 2016 content update.

Sandra Gamarra’s work focuses on the mechanisms of the art world, including the art market, exhibitions and creative processes, to explore its reality and workings. Fiction and selection are processes that dissolve on a large scale within the notion of a spectacle. By reducing the scale of the elements involved, she aims to reveal these processes and question our involvement in them.


From her position within the arts (referring to her position in the world), she believes that one of the ways at our disposal for reacting to and engaging with these systems is to take the processes for creating reality and use them to create fictions by reselecting this ever-partial supposed totality.
