Laia Amigó (Granada, 1996)
Laia Amigó is a multidisciplinary artist, graduated in Product Design and Art Direction, studies at Elisava, Barcelona, where she won an academic award for her final degree project: Asimetrías. This experimental project is an hybrid between art, design and craftsmanship. Taking the body as a subject, it aims to question the limits of the body. A series of practical exercises are designed using craft processes as a guiding language, as an attempt to train the body and record its evolution. As a result of this first approach to craftsmanship, Laia became interested in learning and deepening her knowledge of ceramics and decided to take the Master’s Degree in Ceramics at the University of Fine Arts in Bilbao. There she developed Dispositivo-Hogar, a final master’s degree project that explores the body-home relationship and the objects that construct it. As a result, a series of objects-furniture built from the ceramic technique and seeking the expression of a new material language. This project was featured in the March 2021 issue of AD magazine: ‘AD Best of Spain’. The project was also exhibited during 2021 in the city of Barcelona: Colapso Studio (May, 2021); La Sala by Palmera Estudio (June, 2021); Haimney Gallery (November, 2021). Laia currently works in her studio (@espai.alfar) located in Born. There she develops her work, with which she currently continues to investigate and experiment in the creation of furniture and sculptural pieces using ceramics as the main material.
