Karla Kracht & Andrés Beladiez

We are interested in the present, the now and here within society, the place we occupy in it as individuals. Regarding narrative and aesthetic aspects, we lose ourselves and find us again at frontiers, many times we work outside the box, outside classifications, resulting in a multidisciplinary work, distant from usual genres.

Recently her artistic practice focuses on real time aspects of her work. Her recurring topics are time and space, borders, migration and current social and political issues, which she portraits with a good portion of humour.
