Julia Fuentesal and Pablo M. Arenillas studied at the University of Fine Arts in Seville. Their work explores the ludic dimension of artistic practice as the production of signs whose topology requires the participation of the viewer to complete the configuration of their open compositions.
Accordingly, in their pieces, autobiographical aspects intersect with formal resources like double illustrations and repetition, including chance as an essential component of what is at stake and which, precisely because of this, remains inconclusive.
Their work has been selected as part of VI Cervezas Alhambra Award for Emerging Art ARCO, awarded by the program of the space Iniciarte in Seville (2015) and the Blueproject Foundation (2018) with a residency that concludes in the exhibition GameShow / PlayShow. They have also taken part in different exhibitions such as Turno de réplica. Construcción/ Composición at Museo Patio Herreriano, La vista y el tacto (ca. 1929-30) at Centro Federico García Lorca or Una grieta en la montaña at Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo. They have recently had an important solo exhibition Cubierta brillante, margen delgado, curated by Juan Canela and supported by Artistic Production Program Comunidad de Madrid – DKV at Sala de Arte Joven.
