Abelardo Gil-Fournier is an artist and researcher whose work addresses the material interweaving between the contemporary image and the living surfaces of the planet. His practice is based on the elaboration of platforms -installations, devices and workshops- conceived as open mechanisms, where art, knowledge and politics intersect.
His work has been developed in artist residencies in El Ranchito / Matadero Center of Art (Madrid), Laboral Center of Art (Gijón) and the spanish broadcast television Canal+; in workshops for Transmediale (Berlin), Medialab Prado (Madrid) or the Spanish National Agency for Cooperation (AECID); or as commissions of institutions such as MUSAC Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla and Leon (León), CROMAFest (Mexico DF) or the open hardware company Ultra-lab. His projects have been shown in international exhibitions and festivals and reviewed in mainstream blogs on art and digital culture.
He is currently a PhD student at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton, part of the AMT Archaeologies of Media and Technology Research Group.
