Exhibition and workshop at El Temporal

Last November I was invited to participate in El Temporal, a wonderful art festival in the city of Santander (northern Spain). The third edition of El Temporal included exhibitions, lectures, workshops and many other creative proposals inspired on the unifying concept of Thirst (“La Sed”).

I showed several photographs from my Last Best Hope project in a group exhibition together with, among others, visual artist Laura Voskian and filmmaker Alba Bresolí.

I was also invited to lead a three-day workshop on the creation of a personal photographic project. I truly enjoyed the entire workshop, it was a great experience spending those days with 16 wonderful and committed photographers and artists.

Discussing Justine Kurland´s “Girl Pictures”

During the workshop we discussed different approaches to conceiving and executing a photographic project, including the issues of finding your own photographic language, editing and sequencing the images. We also had time to make some field work and everyone was really open and generous to share their work with the whole group.

A huge thanks to Pablo López, Miriam Mora, Palo Pez and everyone involved in this wonderfully curated and organized festival.

“The Hunt” by Christian Jankowski

Last week I had the chance to visit Christian Jankowski’s exhibition I was told to go with the flow, at the Kunsthalle Tübingen.

Jankowski (Göttingen, 1968) is one of the most influential action and concept artists of his generation. This large monographic show presents a survey of Jankowski’s extensive oeuvre, encompassing not only films but also photographs, sculptures and paintings.

I very much enjoyed works like Heavy Weight HistoryCasting Jesus or his early video The Hunt. 

The Hunt (1992, video VHS, 1:11) illustrates how Christian Jankowski lived for one week off goods he could hunt (and then pay) in the supermarket.

Last Best Hope exhibition in Segovia

Very happy to have exhibited my work Last Best Hope at a very symbolic place. The former jail of Segovia (Spain), now transformed into a cultural center of the World Heritage City, was used as a penitentiary until the year 2000. It was very impressive to see the works hanging in the cells of the jail, since “Last Best Hope” in a way has to do with the idea of being “imprisoned” by our hopes and dreams.

If you are in Barcelona between May 31st and September 10th, do not miss this retrospective exhibition dedicated to the work of Duane Michals (b. 1932, McKeesport, PA). A storyteller through photography, but most of all an inspiring, playful artist.

In this short film (Dominique Dubosc, 1997, 35mm) from the CONTACT series, Duane Michals talks about his own work while looking at some of his contact sheets.
