Concha Jerez

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1941

A pioneer of conceptual art, the style of Concha Jerez also allows one to speak of sound art. A creator who expresses herself through her visual and sound work and performance, also developing the concept of installation as an in situ work. The artist, who lives in Madrid, has delved into the use of new technological possibilities, video and purely sound-based installations. She studied piano and continued her training in the USA and France, where she began to take interest in the political and social aspects, leading her to study political science. Her oeuvre refers to censorship and self-censorship, which the creator considers a legacy of the dictatorship and believes that over time, has infected many types of behaviour in terms of what one must say and what is kept hidden, at the same time criticising the communications media.
