Boiler Room. Rosetta. Alberto Feijóo
Luis Adelantado is pleased to invite you to the next opening in our Boiler Room. The young artist Alberto Feijóo is presenting his new exhibition Rosetta.
This work revolves around the experience of temporality, the past, the present and the memory and persistence of personal identity through the years, drawing lines between history and individual stories (experiences) using visual language as a narrative.
Rosetta is an experimental piece of research that takes the famous Egyptian stela—exhibited in the British Museum in London, where the artist lived and worked—as its starting point and main reference. The enigmatic and renowned stone, therefore, stands as the guiding thread of reflections that are materialised through photography, installation and sculpture. This is a transversal reading that generates a code between the past and the present, with constant references to the life experiences of the author. His interests are closely linked to the concept of city, and in this particular case the British metropolis par excellence, London.
Thus, random characters appear, as well as elements of Western culture, messages, symbols of other places and cult objects. Personal encounters in real and fictional spaces.
