    Raul Ortega Ayala

    Wellington, Región de Wellington, Nueva Zelanda, b. 1973
    Raúl Ortega Ayala (1973) studied Painting at ‘La Esmeralda’ in Mexico City after which he traveled to the Glasgow School of Art for a Master in Fine Arts. He then moved to London, where he worked for five years on various research projects. During his masters degree, he moved away from painting and veered his practice towards Anthropology and began working with the ethnographic method of ‘participant observation.’ Since then, he has purposefully immersed himself for periods of one or two years in various different contexts such as the office world, food and gardening, resulting in three different series titled: Bureaucratic Sonata, An Ethnography on Gardening, and Food for Thought. He is currently exploring other methodologies used in History and Archaeology for an ongoing series ‘From the Pit of Etc.’ devoted to the concept of absence, trace, and iconoclasm. Ortega Ayala is currently living and working in Wellington, New Zealand. Recent group exhibitions include ‘Stirring the Pot of Story’ at the Delfina Foundation in London, ‘Silent Light’ at Dürst Britt & Mayhew, ‘True Story’ at Proyectos Monclova in Mexico City and ‘Yes Naturally’ at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag in The Hague. Solo exhibitions include ‘Living Remains’ at Stroom Den Haag and ‘Melting Pots’ at Rokeby Gallery in London. Work by Ortega Ayala is held in private and public collections, including the David Roberts Art Foundation, the AkzoNobel Art Foundation and the VandenBroek Foundation.

    Renato Leotta

    Turim, Itália, b. 1982

    Renato Leotta (Turin, Italy 1982) lives and works between Turin and Catania. He was born in Turin form a family of Sicilian origins.His work is rooted in the act of the observation, using the ladscape as a subject. As an archeologist of the Real, Renato Leotta tries in his processes of observation to identify and circumscribe a series of images, visualized through different media, that although being related to a specific time and space contain a universal character. Moreover, he works around the limit of the cliché, presenting images that resist to that only for their un-centrality in relation to narration.

    Recent exibitions include: ‘Les Limbes’, La Galerie Centre d’Art Contemporain, Noisy-le-Sec (2016); ‘Piccola Patria’, Galleria Fonti, Naples (2015); ‘Museo (Cavalli e Cavalle, Cavalli Cavalli)’, CRIPTA747, Turin (2015); ‘The yellow side of sociality’ Palais des Beaux-Art, Bruxelles (2015); ‘Museo Archeologico Nazionale’, Wilson Project and Museo Nazionale E. Sanna, Sassari (2013). Since 2008 he co-runs CRIPTA747, a non-profit organization based in Turin dedicated to the research in the contemporary art field. His video installation Egadi (registrazioni) has been recently included in the last Rome Quadriennal for Art.

  • Javier Barrios

    Javier Barrios

    Guadalajara, Mexico, b. 1989
    Javier Barrios (Guadalajara, Mexico, 1989) lives and works in Mexico City. His work is articulated, at first, by a series of accusations and critical notes about the coexistence and confrontation between different structures of power, and the resistance generated as derivative or a response. His recent work, comprised of drawing, sculpture, and installation, is focused on the affective relationships developed within countercultural movements, as in concepts of drawing, fiction and utopian spaces. Barrios works from his immediate personal problems, which then relates to critical situations in today’s society–which are constantly referring to the history, culture and traditions of Mexico. Barrios also has an editorial project called, Ediciones Barrio Boy’z where he publishes his work and collaborations with other creators. He was recently a part of the educational program at SOMA. http://javierbarrios.com/
