Alejandro Palacín


He studied Fine Arts and the Prodart Master in Art Production at the University of Barcelona. His practice focuses on sculpture and installation, but also develops through text and the use of digital technologies. He investigates the tensions between artistic practice and its close worlds: such as design, magic, hobbies, museology, or parties. He understands his artistic practice as the political form of production of a desire / pleasure system emancipated from the consensual parameters of value and time. This last year his pieces respond to the fantasy of a sculpture on which you can eat, read or make a puzzle without turning it into a table. Of a type of sculpture that renounces the will to be autonomous in exchange for being closer and participating in life around it, assuming the risk of losing a certain status.

His work has been seen individually in places such as Halfhouse: FUL METAL ALBUM (2021), Museu Picasso: LOCUS SOLUS minecraft version (2020), at the BCN llum 2020 festival: TECHNOTINTINEO, public installation curated by the BRAC research group (2020) in Nogueras Blanchard, Art nou: Galán de noche serpiente dorada, curated by graciasporsuvisita.

Dilalica opens in May 2019 as an artistic experimentation centre run by Louis-Charles Tiar and Cati Bestard. Most of the projects will be new productions created and curated by the internal team, distributed between Madrid, Barcelona and New York.

The programme will combine its own research related to the artistic process itself, such as the creation of tools to generate works, the appropriation and tension between the physical format and the digital; with proposals that investigate more transversal questions about social constructions such as genre or architecture as a system. Curators and external agents will also be invited to participate and propose other exhibition research.

The Maio architects, whose practice is defined by working in physical spaces that allow theoretical positions to be materialised, are responsible for the gallery reform project. With the idea of blurring the boundaries of the white cube, they have made the minimum changes required to adapt the premises to the regulations, through very visible gestures. In the future, the space will be transformed according to its needs.
