Avelino Sala

Gijón, 1972

His work as an artist has led him to question the cultural and social reality with a critical and uncomfortable look in a continuous exploration of the social and political imaginary. His projects exploit the capacity of art to generate spaces of experimentation that give rise to new realities.

Sala is one of the Spanish referents of art as political resistance. In his production is present a kind of poetics that contains a reflection on state powers and the control they exercise. His forceful aesthetic adds strength to a discourse as necessary as it is powerful.

Since the 2000s Sala has been working in the global context of contemporary art, exhibiting and participating in Biennials and institutions such as the Caracas Biennial of Fire (2006), VideoZone V Biennial of Video Art of Tel Aviv (2010), Nightcomers, 10 Istanbul Biennial (2007), Biennial of the End of the World (2011), Biennial of Central American Isthmus of Guatemala (2014) or the South Biennial, Together Apart (2019).

His work is presented in 2020 in a large project at the Centre del Carmen in Valencia where the themes he has been working on for years are developed: migrations, contemporary dislocation, environmental crisis and the paradoxes of capitalism.
