Nadia Barkate


The work of Nadia Barkate (Bilbao, 1980) refers to the space-time of drawing and its inertia. Approaching traditional techniques from a broad perspective also refers to the circulation between technique and desire, or perceptions of lucidity, hallucination, identity, interiority, and otherness. In his practice, a certain narrative will is very present that links what every day, the manual and the word.
