Alejandro Marote (Madrid,1978) is a member of Blank Paper collective. Starting in 2008 he has worked on a project focused on the four visible layers of matter: fire, water, air and earth. In a continuous process of accumulation of images, the trace of his encounter with reality is revealed. It consists of an ongoing creative process in search of harmony between the opposite forces of form and symbol. His work has been exhibited in institutions such as Museo Oteiza in Pamplona, CentroCentro in Madrid, Museu de Bellas Artes in Castellon, Fundación Arantzazu Gaur in Gipuzkoa, The French Institute of Madrid, La Fábrica gallery in Madrid, Arts Santa Mónica in Barcelona, Circulation(s) Festival in Paris, Chongqing Biennale in China, PhotoEspaña and the acclaimed photography festival Les Rencontres d'Arles.
