Begoña Grande / La Barquera

Performance rituals that transport us from one dimension to another.

Begoña Grande is a self-taught and revolutionary artist working and living in Spain.

She searches for the freedom of the soul through performance and poetry.

She fights for the survival of art as a medicine.

Her work is a continuous mutation, a paralysis between time and space, a transparent reflection.

La Barquera is a collaboration with Jarjor and Remy Risso

Jarjor: “I have emerged from underground scene to experimental music guided by my instinct trying to be as a child discovering his own “music sexuality” and breaking my jailed architect mind up with noise and sound waves.”

Begoña Grande Bio 

Forced to have a degree in the university, she started studying Communication. Her concern for finding something beyond, for breaking the records established by society, led her to a detailed research on the action / reaction of them, thus discovering the immense emptiness of the humanoid system.

After several years where fear and loneliness were her best colleagues, she decided to start working with the video performance format. One of her works, “Emptiness” was selected as the most representative video of bizarre art in the short film festival “Caostica V”, in Bilbao. Since then, she followed her way working with great national and international artists such as Antunez, Rocio Boliver, Cuco Suarez, and in places like Chicago, Houston, London, Portugal, Poland, Euskadi.

With a scholarship by the Center of Artistic Research Ladines, she ventured to experiment with performance in its purest state. Nowadays she researches the modified states of consciousness, working in Alter Consciens, an association dedicated to the research and social outreach of transdisciplinary activities in the border between performing arts,
