Aldobranti, Artist and Researcher.
Open Calls and Group Shows
BioAldobranti is an artist, whose work centres on a conceptual photography often approached through performance.
His work is always driven by research: since 2010 the Cast Shadow of the Self and, more recently ethics in relations with the Other. His work on Shadow concentrates on that when independent and separate of the Figure. Like a naturalist, he stalks out these separate shadows or studies the places where they might fall. The Cast Shadow is closely associated with the Self and the Other and performance work explores our relationship with our Other.
Time is or so it seems to Aldobranti, closely tied to Narrative and recent work in time based media has looked at the way in which identity is expressed as narrative and narrative drives responses to otherness.
His work has been shown throughout the UK, in Portugal and the US. More recently, edizioni Fosco Fornio have published research monographs and curated collections in support of his research.
In previous lives he has been a working mathematician, a Chartered Engineer, a collaborating partner on EU funded projects, IT consultant, a marketing director and a unicyclist.
Aldobranti gained a MA Fine Art with Distinction from Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. He was supported by an academic scholarship from the University of Southampton.
Previous academic qualifications were graduate and postgraduate degrees in Mathematics.
