INFO

Join the artist for a talk on his practice as part of the London Alternative Photography Collective's Open Door programme.

about Fosfofagias

Fosfofagia are collective actions based on light ingestion. The consumed substance travels around the body keeping its brightness, and remains inscribed with the trailing information once it is expelled from the body.

In this case, food becomes a technology that functions as the channel of an experience. Fluorescent proteins from jellyfish, luminescent particles and edible structures turn into intermediary devices capable of creating its own temporary order. The situation generates an unusual social amalgam under the laws of a new ecosystem governed by collective hysteria. Food is just the strategy chosen by its desecrating potential and its capacity to inscribe organic surfaces.

alfonso borragán is a multidisciplinary artist whose work can be interpreted as the development and tracking of irreproducible experience. As an artist, he claims that images don't exist, they are 'latent graphias' that are instants of an experience that cannot be completely revealed. He works with intangible experiences: the emptiness of vision; the measure of incommensurables; paradoxes that are found in the inversion of popular and scientific beilefs; potential instants able to generate a vague momentum, the critical instances in which the generation of images is strengthened within an infinity of sensorial events.
