Olot (Girona), 1970. He lives and works in Barcelona. His artistic career, which began with a degree in Fine Art from the University of Barcelona, springs from an intimate involvement with the paradigmatic elements of modern visual culture, with a special focus on the teenage world. His works often include references to the world of fashion, trends and the culture of nightclubs and music, or to the fan phenomenon, and unabashedly address questions such as sexuality and the relationships between youths and adults, with irony and criticism. His purpose is to demonstrate how consumer culture interferes with individual freedoms by imposing standards and converting our desires into new marketing modes. Hence, in That’s my Impression!, 2001, the artist created a television program somewhere between documentary chronicle and reality show: an art critic resembling a preacher discusses Congost’s career, making all sorts of commentaries and even going to the extent of questioning his lifestyle and his work. Most noteworthy among his solo shows are: The Congosound, La Capella, Barcelona, 1995; Country Girls, Fundació Joan Miró, Espai 13, Barcelona, 2000; That’s my Impression!, Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Zona Emergente, Seville; Temptation, Gal.
