Edurne Rubio

Edurne Rubio

1974 SP

She is a visual artist based in Brussels. Her practice shifts among different contexts and formats: performances, films and sound projects. Edurne creates situations where tension is built up between what we see and what we hear, between present, memory and imagination. With an anthropological-like work, Edurne uses interviews as her primary method of work, collecting individual stories to build a collective narrative and, in so doing, she questions any linear reading of history, offering a subjective reading in continuous transformation and dependent on affections.

Some of her main works in recent years:

  • LIGHT YEARS AWAy (2016) a performance for theatre produced by Kunstenwerkplaats Pianofabriek, Brussels. It was showed in several theatres and festivals in Europe: Beursschouwbourg (BE); Noorderzon Festival, Groningen; Chantiers d’Europe, Theatre de la Ville, (FR); Festival Belluard and Far Festival (CH); Be Festival (EN), Festival Temporada Alta (PE)  and many others.
  • OJO GUAREÑA (2018) a film produced by Argos Centre for Art and Media. It has been part of the official selection of different documentary festivals: DOK Leipzig (DE), Punto de Vista – Audience Prize (ES), DocumentaMadrid (ES), Millennium Doc Against Gravity (PL), Docs Barcelona (ES), FIDBA Buenos Aires (AR), Archaeology Film Festival Belgrado (SB)
  • The site-specific LA RONDA (2018), a performance, and DESDE . CONDE DUQUE (2019), an audio-guide, are two pieces commissioned by the Cultural Center Conde Duque, Madrid (ES)

In 2020 Edurne Rubio will realise: TIJD GATEN, an intervention in the building of GC Elzenhof, selected by Kunstintegratie VGC and a new in situ project commissioned by the São Paulo Art Biennial.
