Elena Gilda

Elena Gilda (Barcelona, 1997) graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona. She works and researches on memories, inheritance and power relations. In her work irony, satire and humor are present and are often the drivers of images characterized by everyday and archival materials. In her pieces, the intimate and personal intertfire with audiovisual speculation in an attempt to find cracks in the hegemonic ways of representation. Her first work "Quines flors es porten a una fossa?" questions the silenced story around the death "from crazyness" of her great-grandmother during the Spanish Civil War.

Gilda has collaborated in several audiovisual projects and self-managed collective projects. She has recently developed the educational project of audiovisual experimentation through stop motion 'Animam!', supported by the City Council of Ciutadella (Menorca).
