"blank, black, back". By Fran Meana
All images and objects in "blank, black, back" are the result of an exchange, a collaboration or a more or less failed negotiation. The exhibition is a game between the continuous decision making, the questioning of authorship as an individual process, the desire to remain open to the unexpected and the need to retain some control. During the exhibition period, new pieces will be added till its closure on 28/11.
Fran Meana (Avilés, 1982) graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Vigo. He currently lives and works in Rotterdam, after studying at the Piet Zwart Institute.
His work explores the forms of power and social rituals, analyzing the relationship between production forms, symbols, images and construction of the collective imagination. He mostly bases on recent events, adding new data, elements of fiction or deliberately erroneous readings, generating new objects, situations or texts.
He has participated in group exhibitions such as "A Map of misreading" in TENT Rotterdam, "Somewhere Else" in Nogueras Blanchard, "First of all" in CA2M Móstoles, "Based on a true story" in the ARTIUM, "Everything is out there" in The Burning House, "89 miles." at MARCO Vigo or "Bringing up knowledge" in the Laboratory 987 MUSAC.
