Info

Born in Lanzarote, Spain in 1964. Lives in Madrid, Spain.

After studying photography in Madrid and Barcelona, García began showing her works to the public in 1998. From the beginning, she has created photography works that raise questions about common images of women in society. Subsequently she produced “Chicas deseos y ficción” (Girls, Desires and Fiction) series depicting women’s world where fiction and fact are mixed, and Constelación (Constellation), a project in which she, tracing the activities of women artists who had been active in the 1920s, wove her fiction intricately into the already accepted images of those women while trying to probe into their inner lives. In recent years she has been working on video works to review various stereotypical images of women.
