Bio (homepage)

alfonso borragán, multidisciplinary artist. He studied Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona and later continued his training at the MFA Slade School of Fine Arts (London) where he completed his PhD. He works and lives in London.

alfonso borragán’s practice is articulated between research, teaching and production. He explores and activates relational processes, physical and metaphysical, with the earth, usually though collective processes and collective actions. His practice is manifested inside the fragility of collective processes and the ephemerality of action, like a latent image in constant change. His work has been described as a “vague momentum”, the critical instance where the generation of images is potentiated.

As an artist, he tries to channel an experience, building situations and devices that are born to be consumed and that try to modify the perception of reality, interfere or expand it. These develop at a symbiotic level with humans, through a correspondence that is activated through them and disappear with them. His works are articulated among them as part of a system of relationships in process.

He has carried out and shared his projects internationally usally driven by long collective processes of research. His latest works have been seen at the National Museum of art and CCELP in La Paz (Litofagos-Goalito); Botin Centre in Santander (Halito); Emerson Dorsch in Miami (Bucarolito); Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona (Alterbees); Kontejner in Zagreb (Daguerrolito); Plataforma Bogotá (Fosfofagia 04) and Khoj Artist Association in New Delhi (Fosfofagia 03).

Currently he is lecturer in Arts and Science at the University College London and has taught classes, workshops and conferences at the Slade School of Fine Arts, Camberwell College of Arts, London College of Communication, Swansea Metropolitan, Plymouth University of Arts, University of Cantabria, University of Barcelona, ​​Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) or the Institut d’Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya.
