Alberto Feijoo at the Photographers’ Gallery New Talent Exhibition
14 Jun - 6 Oct|
The Photographers’ Gallery|
Spanish photographer Alberto Feijoo has been selected among the 8 UK based artist to take part in The Photographers’ Gallery New Talent Annual Exhibition and Programme. American artist Jim Goldberg and the curatorial team at The Photographers’ Gallery selected the work of Feijoo from an open call aimed to identy and champion under-recognized or emergin UK based artists.
Alberto Feijóo (b.1985, Spain) draws on the materiality of the image in relation to video, sculpture, installation, book-making and design. His work maps the passage of time, memories and world events, constantly mixing genres and recontextualising the ‘biography of objects’ which surround him.
In addition to the forthcoming exhibition showcase, the artists each receive twelve months of individual mentoring. Working with TPG curators to identify a particular area of their wider practice needing development and support, each artist will then be paired with a carefully selected mentor from the creative field, who will provide specific and ongoing advice and tutelage. Over the course of a year the mentorship will include studio visits, meetings, discussion and critiques relating to their work.
Showing a range of approaches to both the medium and exhibition making, the artists selected for the first edition of TNT present works which encompass the full spectrum of photographic practices today. From the experimental to the documentary, both the works and presentations test the capacity and materiality of the form, using found imagery, surface manipulation, collage and 3D processes to document contemporary stories through personal memories and collective myths.
