Profile
Artist

Ángel Marcos work repeatedly refers to the idea of the ‘blind spot’ as defined by Nobel literature laureate Elias Canetti: ‘a point of reversal beyond which things are no longer real’. Marcos triggers his gaze beyond all real experience; there, in the space between desire, know-how and politics, seen as the result of replacing the truth by the real in multiple games of subjectivities of knowledge and action. His works have been exhibited in recognised institutions such as Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; Institut Valencià d’Art Modern; ARTIUM, Vitoria-Gasteiz; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León; Museo Patio Herreriano, Valladolid; Naples Museum of Art, Florida; FNAC, Paris; and Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris. Angel Marcos lives and works in Valladolid.
