Esther Ferrer
Esther Ferrer was born in San Sebastián, Spain, in 1937 and has lived in Paris for the last twenty years. Esther Ferrer is best known for her performances, which have been her principal form of artistic expression since 1967, both as a soloist and as a member of the group ZAJ. Her work has always been oriented to ephemeral artistic action rather than to permanent artistic production.
Esther Ferrer has performed throughout Europe (Yugoslavia, Poland, Germany, Italy, France, Suitzerland, Hungry, Slovaquia, U.K., Spain, Denmark, etc.), as well as in Cuba, the United States, Japan and Korea.

Name:Esther Ferrer
Esther Ferrer (San Sebastián, 1937) joined the Zaj group (founded in 1964 by Madridian musician Ramón Barce, Canarian artist Juan Hidalgo, and Italian Walter Marchetti) in 1967.
Esther Ferrer carried out her first performance in 1967, and since then that ephemeral practice has become the leitmotif of her work.
For Ferrer the performer is not an actor, but an element that executes an action, and what happens in a performance is real. It is evidence of materiality and moves away from any illusionist game. At the same time the artist tries to transmit a consciousness of the passing of time: Time, Space (which includes mental space) and Presence (hers and everyone's) are elements that manipulate her actions in which she usually incorporates everyday objects: hammers, watches, tables, chairs, frames, threads, ropes, shoes, etc.

Esther Ferrer
Esther Ferrer's work spans four decades of international avant-garde activity. Although internationally recognsied for her work in performance art, both as solo artist and as a member of the seminal Spanish group ZAJ , she has also consistently produced installations. She has exhibited her work globally and represented Spain at the Venice Biennale in 1999.
Her installations are sometimes born out of her performances and sometimes the opposite occurs. She also finds, however, that performance and installation are inseparable:
