Prada is a visual artist based in Spain. She holds a degree from the Complutense University in Madrid. In her creative work, from minimal resources against the empowerment of perfect machines [near at an Arte Povera position], Prada is interested in the search for balance between conceptual and sensory, between ethics and aesthetics. She also uses linguistic polyvalence as a resource for simultaneous multiple layers of meaning.
After a decade of learning and experimentation in video and multimedia, she presented one of her artworks in 2009 receiving a special mention at the Spanish Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences.
Other awards include: in Video art [Transfera and MADATAC. MNCARS, 2011], Abstract Art in Motion [Punto y Raya. MNCARS, 2011], Poetry Film [ZEBRA. Babylon Kino, Berlin, 2012] and Video essay [FIVAC Cuba, First Price, 2017].
She has presented three solo exhibitions in Spain and has participated in group exhibitions, screenings, and festivals in over forty countries.
“ELECTRonIC WATER” by Lisi Prada for the #MNMF2018
“We are so immersed in the technology that we often forget that we are part of nature and that the future of human being as a species depends on its preservation. Water is a good conductor of electricity and -in contact with your eyes-, this work aims to produce you a little tremor in your aesthetic and ecological conscience: water is gold. Shot at the three waters surrounding the Iberian Peninsula.”
