Video:David Lamelas at Raven Row Laura Bushell
Emerging as part of the international conceptual art movement in the late 60s, Buenos Aires born David Lamelas has created work across artistic and geographical boundaries. He moved from sculpture into film and now works in moving image, photography and installation, with his latest installation currently showing at Bloomberg Space and a selection of his films screening at Raven Row. FAD caught up with the artist to talk about his career and the works on show, firstly at Raven Row’s rather deliciously decorated apartment, then in his installation at Bloomberg Space.
