Felipe Meres

....

Las fotografías, películas y esculturas de Felipe Meres exploran las relaciones entre las estructuras con significado y la materia indeterminada que evade sin cesar su comprensión. Ya sea explorando los límites de las tecnologías de imágenes, o graficando la vida social de los materiales, el trabajo de Meres invita al espectador a reconsiderar los patrones de diferencia que creamos para dar sentido y regular los objetos, cuerpos y comportamientos que nos rodean.

Su trabajo ha sido presentado en GAMeC en Bergamo, Italia; Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, FL; Lisa Cooley, NY y Galeria Triângulo en São Paulo, Brasil.

Tiene un MFA de Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College, Nueva York, y es candidato a doctorado en Antropología en The New School, NY. Recibió el Premio Becas y Comisiones de Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation Grants & Commissions Award y el 10th Tom of Finland Foundation Emerging Artist Grand Prize.
