Alejandro Guijarro ( Spain - 1979 )

 

Born in Madrid in 1979, Spanish photographer Alejandro Guijarro lives and works in London. After studying at the Royal College of Art, he participated in numerous international exhibitions in New York, London, Madrid and Milan. His work is in private collections such as the Frank-Suss Collection and the Saatchi Gallery. His work explores the possibilities of photography and questioned its ability to relate to reality and to represent the truth.

MOMENTUM
 

This series is the result of a project conducted over three years, during which Alejandro Guijarro visited the world's leading institutions in the field of quantum mechanics: Oxford and Cambridge in the UK, Berkeley and Stanford in the U.S. or the CERN in Switzerland. Using large format photography, he captures the offices and classrooms blackboards and presents them live size. Once taken out of their context, these boards become abstract paintings: formulas and equations mutate into forms, lines and colors. Traces of sponges which have sometimes erased some of the content become imaginary landscapes for the viewer's eye. These colorful designs remind the use of writing in the works of painters such as Basquiat and Cy Twombly.

Far from wanting to present an objective reality, Momentum is an attempt to bridge the worlds of science and arts. This series focuses on the gap between intentions and outcomes related to meanings and contexts. Removing these boards from their original environment, Alejandro Guijarro blurs the line between reality and its indexical representation. In doing so, it questions the status of the photographic image and allows us to access the pictorial and aesthetic dimensions of these objects.

 

In 2013, Alejandro Guijarro participated to the Vevey International Photography Award organised by the Festival Images.
