Cristina Lucas (1973, Jaen) is interested in power mechanisms. She builds her work from deep analysis of the main politic structures such as the State or Religion, which are dissected by the artist in order to make existing contradictions between official stories, real history and collective memory, appear. She works with video (More Light, 2003; My Struggle, 2004), installations (Pantone, 2007), performances, photography, paintings, 3D animation (The Axis of Evil, 2003). She has participated in Istanbul Biennial 2007 and Sao Paulo Biennial 2008. She has exhibited in several museums, between them, Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo (Madrid) during 2009. Her work is included in several Museums’ Collections. For instance, the video Pantone was acquired by Pompidou Museum in 2008.
