Marcel-lí Antunez

Internationally recognised as one of the key figures in electronic art and dramatic experimentation, Marcel.lí’s career has spanned a 30-year period. During this time he has developed an entirely personal and iconoclastic visual universe, in which he reflects on the systems of artistic production.

Since the 1980s, Antúnez’s work has displayed an interest in the human condition and the fears and the desires of the individual. He first developed this theme with the tribal performances of La Fura dels Baus and subsequently in his solo career, through work that offers complex systems, often becoming uncategorised hybrids.

Marcel.lí has produced installations and performance art in museums, galleries, theatres and unconventional spaces in over 40 different countries. These include the Musée Europienne de la Photographie de la Ville de Paris, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the DAF in Tokyo, the MACBA in Barcelona and the ZDB in Lisbon.

Antúnez has also received a number of prizes and distinctions: First prize at the Festival Etrange, Paris 1994, Best New Media, Noveau Cinéma Noveaux Médias, Montreal 1999, Max Prize for New Theatre, Spain 2001, FAD Prize 2001 Barcelona. He also received a special mention at the Prix Ars Electronica 2003 and the Ciutat de Barcelona prize in the multimedia category in 2004.
