Hondartza Fraga

Artist, Project manager

Using drawing, photography, animation and video as her main mediums, she explores our individual and collective relationship to the world around us, the different ‘distances’ between ourselves and everything else: spatial, temporal, emotional, cultural and imagined. Featured in her work are model ships, maps, earth globes and other domestic objects that evoke an idea of travel or faraway places. In the work, these objects act as links between home and elsewhere, questioning the meaning of both terms and our position in-between.
