Marco Godoy: Europe

25 May 2016 - 16 Jun 2016

Focusing on the visual and symbolic relationships between authority and power, Spanish artist Marco Godoy (b. 1986 Madrid) analyses the social and political ramifications of the real and fictional divides that make up the European Union. In his upcoming exhibition at Copperfield, Godoy works with sculpture, installation, and photography to explore the concept of Europe’s boarders.

Presenting these divides as a construction of authority, Godoy’s work illustrates the peculiarity of differences in basic legal rights such as labour wages that change within a matter or meters from one country to another. Attention is also drawn to the way the actual geographical divide removes those in the United Kingdom from the full effects of issues such as the refugee crisis.

Marco Godoy has studied Fine Arts at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art (2014). Following his recent group exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou and Palais de Tokyo, The exhibition Europe at Copperfield, London will be Godoy’s first solo show in the UK.
