Biography

Eschewing a definitive practice, José Arnaud-Bello investigates the relationship between the processes of art making and the geological, natural, and urban processes of the world in photographs, installation, sculpture, and videos. He is fascinated by the classification, compilation, and archiving of objects brought into the studio space from the outside world, as in his series “A Heap of Coal Sifted” (2008). Arnaud-Bello’s work also delves into the way language affects the experience of a specific material or natural event, as in the holistic investigation of an abandoned discotheque he presented in After the Fact (2008). His practice references both the Conceptual and Land Art practices of the 1960s and ’70s.
