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 the metaphysics of Time.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 current research is in the separation of a performance narrative from a viewer’s sense of time and their own narrative awareness. This work translates into the framing of his performance work in viewers’s awareness of time.
His work has been shown throughout the UK, in Portugal and the US. He has also self-published several photobooks in Blurb and Kindle formats.
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.
