Concha Pérez builds non-existent yet not impossible spaces. With digital imaging applied to photography virtually anything is possible and the doubt about what is real and what is imagined becomes a shadow that covers any imagined sun. Cybernetic places that are familiar to us, armchairs in the middle of the street, the sea as an inhabited place, a lone chair in a quarry…. Places of uncertainty in which the presence of man bestows them with a certain logic, which makes us see them as something possible, yet without the assurance of having been there, places that we believe we have seen in some film, perhaps in some dream, but that work in our subconscious as preambles of future landscapes.
— Rosa Olivares
Concha Perez was one of three photographers chosen to represent Spain in 2008 at the nightlong projection of photographs from 27 European countries at the Rencontres Festival in Arles.
