Damaris Pan 'Un martillo en la cabeza' at AMP_Bcn | Barcelona Gallery Weekend

15 Jun 2022

AMP is pleased to announce what will be its proposal for the new edition of Barcelona Gallery Weekend 2022: Damaris Pan.

Under the title ‘Un martillo en la cabeza’ [A hammer on the head] the exhibition will bring together a selection of medium and large format paintings made in recent months. Artworks that are not subject to specific themes but seek to respond to the demands of the work’s material evolution from its own singularity, so that they become a catalyst for questions that challenge the artist about art and life.

Damaris Pan (Mallabia, 1983), lives and carries out her artistic practice in Bilbao.

Among her most recent exhibitions is worth mentioning the solo shows ‘Veri Pery’ at Halfhouse (Barcelona, ​​2022), ‘Cuernos a la Vista’ at BilbaoArte (2020) and ‘Qué Morena tú’ at Sala Rekalde (Bilbao, 2018), the duo Sugaar with Fiona Mackay at the Cibrián gallery (Donostia, 2021), the group show ‘Turno de Réplica’ at the Patio Herreriano Museum and curated by Javier Hontoria (Valladolid, 2021) and ‘Bi Dos Two’ at Azkuna Zentroa (Bilbao, 2018).

She has recently been awarded the Gure Artea 2021 Prize, in the category of recognition of artistic activity. In addition, in the 2021 call she has received one of the two annual Eremuak APA Artistic Practice Grants. She has also participated in various residencies such as Kunsthochschule Weissensee Berlin (2005), Art OMI in New York (2018) and Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in Chongqing, China (2019).

Her doctoral thesis (2014) was defended from the deviation as an artistic foundation under the title “Lo Bueno, lo Bello, lo Berdadero”. She combines creation with teaching work as part of the Painting Department of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of the Basque Country.
