La Fura dels Baus (1979 - 1989)

While studying Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, Marcel-lí Antúnez was co-founder, together with Carles Padrissa, Pere Tantinyà, Quico Palomar, and Teresa Puig of the collective La Fura dels Baus. He was part of it, from 1979 to 1989, as performer, musician and artistic coordinator in the first three performances of the group. These are the trilogy Accions (1984), Suz /o /Suz (1985) and Tier Mon (1988), powerful performances of ritual character that break the distance between the stage space and the spectator and where music and action merge.

The Rhinos (1985 - 1992)

With Sergi Caballero and Pau Nubiola he founded the collective Los Rinos, whose first objectives revolved around graffiti. Later their activity was extended to other formats, from pictorial action to video performance, concert and mural installation. An example of the latter is Rinodigestió (1987), a system of interconnected wooden and glass boxes containing decomposing organic matter.

Solo career (1992 - Present)

Since 1992 Marcel-lí Antúnez has developed, alone, a series of works in different formats. In them we can appreciate the artist's interest in biology, technology, society and culture. Using drawing and painting as the basis of his work for the embodiment of ideas, as he himself explains in several publications and in the documentary El Dibuixant, he has used techniques as diverse as interactive sculpture -of both organic and artificial materials-, the cultivation of microorganisms and, above all, the fusion of staging -performance- with interactivity and cinematographic elements such as animation and multiple projection of screens and sound systems.
