Mercedes MANGRANÉ

Mercedes Mangrané (born 1988 in Barcelona, where she lives and works) metaphorically addresses objects and marginalized architectures which she observes at close range with an existential desire to understand the human nature through material culture. Although the starting point is specific and physical, the reflections it evokes are directed towards the intangible.

In 2018 Mangrané won the Night of Museums contest from the Hangar.org arts and research program to develop a site-specific intervention (Flirteo) at the Botanical Garden of Barcelona. She has done a long-term art residency at Hangar.org Barcelona focusing on painting. In 2019 she received the collector’s prize 2019 of the Vilacasas Foundation and participated in in Compositions, a site-specific based program of artistic interventions in public space curated by Juan Canela during the Barcelona Gallery Weekend.
