In Álvaro Albaladejo's work, the eye is always exploded. Through a series of hallucinatory technologies Albaladejo throws perception against its limits.
The eye is abyssed in Albaladejo's sculptures, fascinated by the interweaving of spectral forms and optical effects. Thus, besieged by paradoxes and contradictions, the gaze is shipwrecked and, in the vertigo of the fall, the very act of seeing is thematised. Ultimately, what Albaladejo shows by exploding the visual field is the fragile frontier that separates material reality from psychic reality. In this sense, Albaladejo is a sculptor not only of the perceived object, but of perception itself.
Álvaro Albaladejo's exhibition career began in 2007 and since then he has participated in various exhibitions, both individual and collective, and has received numerous grants such as the residency and production grant awarded to him by the C3A residency programme in 2019 and the production grant awarded to him by BILBAOARTE in the same year.
