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.
