Borondo: Animal

  • Londonewcastle Project Space 28 Redchurch St London, E2 7DP United Kingdom (map)

Borondo is an artist whose street work has caught the attention of several members of this group in walks we had around Shoreditch - and this is his biggest gallery show to date.

In his upcoming exhibition ‘Animal’, the Spanish urban artist Gonzalo Borondo aims to explore the conflict between our innate animal instincts and our present lives, which are coated with the dependence of technology and our fear for the unknown. 

Borondo’s work is poetic and evoking, inciting the public to pause and reflect on their own mortality—their memento mori—leaving all vanities behind. 

The artist will take us through eight thematic spaces that include video installations and painting animations in collaboration with Carmen Maín (Spain), and sculpture installations, created together with Edoardo Tresoldi (Italy) and Despina Charitonidi (Germany).

“London is the place in Europe where things are happening” says Borondo, who was a passing resident of Hackney and now comes back to reveal his most extensive project yet.
