THE ARTIST OF THE WEEK

WEEK  22/10/2012

WHO

Marcelo Deguchi (1986) is a Brazilian photographer based in London. He obtained a BA degree in Graphic Design in 2009 from the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná and is currently about to finish his MA Photography at the London College of Communication (University of the Arts London). He will also take part of the London College of Communication Masters in Photography final Show, A Forming State, this November.

WHY

Beside  participating in several group shows in his hometown, Curitiba, his work has been published by the on-line magazine Ideafixa and he is currently co-curator in INTENTO;  An on-line platform showcasing collaborative work and displaying international emerging artists.  

WHAT

Marcelo’s project entitled ‘Monuments for a Season’ depicts sites in which he has gone and intervened by constructing monuments. Marcelo’s work investigates perceptions on landscape by creating a dialogue between space and time. A game on how meanings are constructed by and linked to our perception. The monuments, which here could be read as simple grids made of strings or the final framed photographic objects – give hints of a passing of time that will subdue and overcome any previous constructed and historical meanings.
