A solo show of new and recent photographic work by the Spanish born, London based artist.

About

Growing up between Syria and Spain, Antonio Marguet attributes a childhood fascination with sculpting plastic objects to the influence of his father's bublegum factory.

Now based in London, Marguet works at the boundary between sculpture, installation and photography, bringing together a range of interdisciplinary skills to create highly original, unconventional and often humorous objects. These are carefully photographed before the originals are destroyed – the image ultimately becoming their only remaining record.

Marguet is fascinated by the use of props and surrogates. Images become objects, the real is concealed and the photograph becomes a mythological or fetishistic object.
