<Artist's profile>
MawatreS (Madrid, 1986), currently lives and works in Bilbao. Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Research and Creation in Art from the UPV-EHU. He has been awarded a scholarship by INJUVE (Madrid, 2015), EREMUAK (Vitoria, 2015), East Street Arts (Leeds, UK, 2015), Micro Interventions (Arts Santa Monica, Barcelona, 2015) BilbaoArte (Bilbao, 2013), the Basque Government (2017) and Ertibil Bizkaia (2019), among others. He has individually exhibited in spaces such as Espacio Trapezio (Madrid), La Ciudadela (Pamplona), East St Arts (Leeds, UK), 3Era esquerra (Girona), Sicart Gallery (Barcelona), BilbaoArte Foundation (Bilbao), Ma Studio Beijing (China) and the Montehermoso Kulturunea Cultural Center (Vitoria).
It began in the world of urban art. His work takes conceptual place between public spaces, monuments and contemporary documentation. He is interested in how physical spaces influence the social events that happen in them. His projects seek to redefine what we observe, focusing on details that are not seen, and involving new agents of perspective. The projects he develops seek to have some kind of link with their context, whether formal, historical or social.

<Artist's statement>

"It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism."

Mawa's exhibition in Koganecho focuses on the micro, observing small details that go unnoticed. Objects, situations, processes... Small things that help to build contexts suited to each person, feeling and emotion. Small spots, wrinkles or cuts that make each situation something different and unique. Separating everyday life from great stories and great heroes, looking at the small things that make the world a better place.

スペイン・バスク自治政府ビスカヤ県文化部が実施している若手アーティスト支援プログラム「ERTIBIL BIZKAIA」では、受賞者への副賞として、日本でのアーティスト・イン・レジデンス(AIR)の機会が提供されます。同政府からの協力要請を受けて、2018年度には、遊工房アートスペース(東京)の「Y-AIR」とStudio Kura(福岡)で、3名のアーティストが日本での滞在制作・交流プログラムを行いました。

「Y-AIR, AIR for Young」は、2013年度から遊工房アートスペースが、美大生や美大卒業生がAIRにアクセスしやすい環境づくりを目指して実践しているAIRプログラムです。アーティストが自律的な創作活動を行うための滞在制作の場としてのAIRと、アーティスト養成の学府・美術大学との協働による様々な可能性を探る活動を行い、遊工房アートスペースと女子美術大学の協働事業として実施しています。


<On the exchange programme>
The programme "ERTIBIL BIZKAIA", which supports emerging artists, and is conducted by the Department for Culture of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia in Basque, Spain, provides an opportunity to take part in an Artist in Residency in Japan as a supplementary prize for its winners. On the department's request, 3 artists took part in an exchange programme at Yukobo Art Space (Tokyo) and Studio Kura (Fukuoka) in 2018.
For the 2019 exchange programme, 2 artists have been chosen to take part in residencies for 2 months from July-August: one with Yukobo Art Space's Y-AIR (Tokyo), and another with Koganecho AIR (Koganecho).

<On Y-AIR>
Y-AIR / AIR for Young is a residency programme that has been running since 2013 with the aim of giving graduates access to Artist in Residencies. The AIR gives artists space to be creative, and conducts activities with artists in training and art graduates, in collaboration with Youkubo Art Space and the Joshibi University of Art and Design.
