Erola Arcalís

Erola Arcalís (b. 1986 Maó, Spain; lives and works in London, UK) is an artist whose work combines images of abstract landscapes and sculptural still life to create fictions around individual and collective memories, re-told in ways beyond a linear temporal narrative. Drawing on mythology and poetry, her practice navigates staged photographs and the chance encounter, historical research and personal experience.

Her work was also shortlisted for the Barbara Weil Prize (2022); the discovery award of Photo España, Madrid (2019); and is part of the European photography organization Futures.
