ROKEBY presents an exhibition in two parts of work by Raul Ortega Ayala from his ongoing food series. Open until 24.06.11.
Raul Ortega Ayala’s practice and methodology is based on research into everyday yet somehow unfamiliar subjects such as food, gardening and office work. Assuming the role of ‘participant observer’, the artist covertly immerses himself in these environments for extended periods of time. Through his personal explorations the artist produces extensive and wide-ranging work, which he refers to as souvenirs. These works are typically displayed alongside field notes – drawings, paintings, photographs and ephemeral material employed in the artists working process.
Part I of the exhibition closes on Friday 24 June, dates in July for Part II and the Melting Pots installation and performance to be confirmed.
