Eugènia Balcells

Experimental filmmaker

Eugènia Balcells was born in Barcelona in 1943 where she graduated with a major in Technical Architecture. Being the daughter and granddaughter of architects and inventors, she had daily contact with all kinds of ingenious artifacts, related to vision and mathematics, that encouraged her study of the tenuous balance between the intangible and the material, between the illusory and the exact.

She later moved to New York and completed her artistic training at the University of Iowa where she obtained her Master in Art. Her artistic activity started in the mid-seventies in the context of conceptual art, becoming a pioneer in Spain within experimental film making and audiovisual art.

She has participated with the CCCB in «FEMINISMS!» and created Un espai propi(2000) for the exhibition «Leading Lights of the 20th Century. Virginia Woolf».
