Cristina Galán (b.1992, Spain) is a visual artist working mainly with photography and video. Her work explores the subversion of identity and the appearance of the sinister beneath the visually polished surface of reality, reflecting on the search for individual identity through collective identity. Galán builds in each work a universe with its own symbols and codes where everything that is there is there to be seen. Galán's work has been exhibited in Festivals and art centres such as Festival F2, Dortmund, Germany / Photo Israel, tel Aviv, Israel / CEART (Art Center Tomás y Valiente), Madrid, Spain / ProyectArte 19, Sevilla, Spain / Athens Photo Festival, Athens, Greece / XVI Bienal internacional de fotografía de Córdoba, Spain / 2018 Muestra de Arte Joven, La Rioja, Spain.
