Àngels barcelona is pleased to present the first solo show in Spain of the interdisciplinary artist Ania Soliman (b. 1970, Warsaw), whose research-based body of work constantly questions the basis for different kinds of representation, knowledge or means of communication, paying special attention to the nature of consciousness as it is constructed across a variety of disciplines.

As the artist states, the title for this show comes from trying to type the word “Freud” into a text message and having autocorrect suggest the word “fee” and then the word “fraud.” It felt to her as if the digital unconscious was trying to deliver a verdict on the state of psychoanalysis now that the brain is seen as a machine whose functioning is better addressed through chemical processes and meditation rather than through narratives.
