Perejaume

(Sant Pol de Mar, 1957)

A Catalan artist and writer. He studied by frequenting the work of Joan Brossa, J. V. Foix and Jacint Verdaguer, authors who influenced the development of his artistic perspective, as well as the popular culture of the Maresme and the world of farm workers. Combining plastic and literary creation, his work combines painting, sculpture, words, action, video and sound, all questioning the relationships between nature and culture. In 2005, he won the Generalitat of Catalonia’s National Visual Arts Prize for Els cims pensamenters and the 2006 Spanish Ministry for Culture's National Plastic Arts Prize for 'reformulating the relationship between art and territory'. Some of his most renowned interventions and exhibitions are the medallions of the Gran Teatre del Liceu (1999), the retrospectives Deixar de fer una exposició (Macba, 1999) and Ai Perejaume, si veiés la munió d’obres que t’envolten, no en faries cap de nova! (La Pedrera, 2011). His books include L’obra i la por (Galàxia Gutenberg, 2007), Pagèsiques (Edicions 62, 2011, City of Barcelona Prize and Lletra d’Or Prize, 2012),
