The work of Raúl Hevia revolves around a questioning of the ways private life is narrated, the contemporary Self’s forms of expression, through supports such as photography and video, underlining the visual aspect of written language and the transposition of the verbal into the visual. He poses private life as a spectacular form, the private as a public act, and the perversion leading to this transposition of spaces; he investigates the ability of memory to turn each reality (each self) into fiction, to alter it, and the relationships or the set of values that are established between the archive and today.
Raúl Hevia lives and works in Santander. His work has been featured in international exhibitions and events, such as MIA Fair, Milano (2015), ARCO, Madrid (2015, 2012), ARTBO, Bogotá (2014), Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa, Lisbon (2013), and the Instituto Cervantes New York and Warsaw (2013), among others. Among his solo exhibitions, M.U.S.E.A, (with Antonio Díaz Grande), Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Santander– MAS, Santander (2014), Instrucciones para ser mi propio padre, JosédelaFuente (2013) and Después del salto de página, galería Paz y Comedias, Valencia (2011) stand out.
