Debra, Espinosa


Born in Alicante, Spain

Lives & works in Barcelona, Spain

Studied set design, costumes and lighting for theater at the School of Dramatic Arts in Barcelona (Institut del Teatre), and an MA in Urban Design.

With 10 years of experience in designing sets and costumes for theater, my research is now focused on privacy related work, focusing it from different perspectives. Working whenever possible from the memory of the collective.

For years I have worked through those emotions and hidden memories, through formats such as theatrical drama, characterization of characters, painting and video art; art has help to work my naked self.

I feel special attraction for urban, site-specific art and public art. Public space is a great stage on which to dialogue about humanity, its weaknesses, its strengths and the imprint that inevitably leaves on space.

Through the series of projects I started under the name of INTIMACY, I jumped the personal barrier to work in the collective field.
