Emilio Moreno (Spain, 1980) is a visual artist interested in the biography of objects, gestures and words. His practice investigates different notions of value and the realms of experience from which cultural values emerge. Moreno graduated in English Philology before he completed his MFA in photography and his MFA in artistic research. Probably because of Moreno’s background in language and literature studies, his films, performances, installations, etc. investigate -among other things- the modes of construction of a narrative and the relationship between history and stories.
Recent screenings include International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), International Film Festival Las Palmas, DocumentaMadrid, FIDOCS, Santiago de Chile, Seoul International New Media Festival, NEMAF, and Tabakalera International Center for Contemporary Culture, in San Sebastián, Spain. Besides, Moreno’s work has recently been shown in solo exhibitions at Center for Contemporary Art Celje, Slovenia, Open Studios Jan Van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, Galerija Miroslav Kraljevic, Zagreb, South African National Gallery, Cape Town, and in group shows at Danielle Arnaud Gallery, London, de Appel Arts Centre, Amsterdam, Onomatopee, Eindhoven and CASCO, Utrecht.
Moreno was a resident artist at Tabakalera, International Center for Contemporary Culture, San Sebastián; Jan Van Eyck Academy, Maastricht, Triangle Arts New York, and The Annex-The South African National Gallery, Cape Town, and CASCO Utrecht.
