Born in Palma de Mallorca,
Lives and Works in Barcelona.
Vidal’s work is concerned with issues that address social
conflict, activism, self-defence, and violence. His practice involves
several mediums such as video, photography, drawing, and installation.
Vidal sees his work as a wicked exercise that examines today’s
society’s state of mind. In the last years he has been investigating
aesthetic positions prior to the act of violence. From video-manuals
of self-defence to 80`s punk, early rave techno or 90’s cult
movies. He brings all these influences and concepts together to
organize them as an attempt of understanding an historical moment
and its implications.
He investigates the social, political and economic implications
of contemporary Art taking a critical look at the way in which
marketing and politics distort our attitudes to violence and life
within our cities.
