News from the Palace is a collection of works that use irony and a kind of “soft activism” in order to reflect on the mechanisms that perpetuate the continuity of the current increasing economic inequalities.
146.376 euros is the title of this piece, and also the amount that the Spanish princess Leonor (as seen in the middle of the scene) will be earning from 2023 onwards from public funds. The scene depicts a recent controversial moment of the Spanish royal family in presence of the press at the Palma Cathedral in 2018.
News from the palace are originally detailed reproductions of documents made in watercolor, graphite, ink and/or gouache. These documents are appropriations, alterations, fictional recreations and/or, exceptionally, authentic documents that have not required any modifications at all.
All prints are wrapped in acid free tissue and packaged in strong cardboard boxes or tubes (depending on the size).
Each print is stamped, signed and numbered by the artist´s hand on the back. It is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued exclusively by Tania Blanco.
