Portrait: Ed Fornieles

Ed Fornieles’ recent project Associations is a personal look at the cultural environment we inhabit. The artist has collected pictures from the internet, ordering them in series of images through an associative process based on similarities in form and content: from the image of a hand to that of a family leading to a house and finally to the globe of the world. Elsewhere the association of a couple holding hands leads to a passionate kiss, the globe to a dinosaur and the open palm of a hand to the superhero Tony Stark interpreted by Robert Downey Jr. Through creating chains of associations Fornieles maps out his own predilections, tastes and biases as well as the boundaries of a wider space of cultural possibilities. As in his previous works, the artist exemplifies here his ongoing investigation with how identity is formed, replicated and sustained through the ongoing myriad of pressures that make up daily life.

Ed Fornieles’ Associations 12# will be featured on our Instagram feed starting June 6, 2021.

Ed Fornieles  is an artist working in London. He has exhibited at The Serpentine Gallery, Chisenhale Gallery, Martin Gropius Bau, amongst various other institutions and galleries.
