In her creative processes, Narelle Jubelin defines her works by researching and analysing the contexts in which her projects are framed. On this occasion she draws on specific object or literary references within the Galician context and linking them to other mappings and personal references. In the specific case of Nalgures (Someplace), she highlights architectural heritage—housing, community, social and work spaces, including public washing places and cemeteries—and literary and cultural references, or the use of text as image, searching for critical spaces to weave new collaborative projects.

Narelle Jubelin proposes a collaborative project in which she revisits specific spaces, such as the cemetery of Bonaval and the public washing places of Picaños and Sarela. The initiative starts at the CGAC, next to the entrance of the French Route, the main pilgrim route to the city of Santiago de Compostela, marked by itineraries and routes that forge ahead, linking paths and trails. We will reflect on the construction of present day communication routes and their environmental, social, cultural and economic effects on the memory of the landscape and ways of occupying space, and on the formal redefinition of different cultural productions.


Narelle Jubelin (Sydney, 1960) was the cofounder of Firstdraft, one of the first artist-run spaces in Australia in the mid-1980s, and is now part of ABM Confecciones—a space for thought, action and debate located in Madrid, her home city since 1996.

Graduate in Fine Arts from the Alexander Mackie College (Sydney), Jubelin has a wide-ranging exhibition career in which the following group exhibitions are particularly relevant: Trade Delivers People (Aperto, Venice Biennale, 1990), The Day After Tomorrow (Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisbon, 1994), Cocido y crudo (Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, 1994). In addition, in 2009 she took part in The Future is Unwritten (in the framework of the project Provisions for the Future, the 9th Sharjah Biennale) and Learning Modern (School of the Art Institute Sullivan Gallery, Chicago). Her solo exhibitions include SoftShoulder (The Renaissance Society, University of Chicago, 1994), Soft and Slow (Monash University Gallery, Melbourne, 1995); ECRU (Pavilhão Blanco, Instituto de Arte Contemporânea, Lisbon, 1998), Shumakom (Artists’ Space, Jerusalem, 2002); Ungrammatical Landscape (Centro José Guerrero, Granada, 2006), Afterimage (La Casa Encendida, Madrid, 2013), Plantas y Plantas (CAM Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, 2013); Flamenco primitivo (Marlborough Contemporary, London, 2016) or Camino Primitivo (Galería Nordés, Santiago de Compostela, 2018).
