Overview participating exhibitions
In his series NEW WORLD OBSERVATORY, Fernando Pereira Gomes examines the relation between the real and the virtual. His photographs depict the streets of big cities in developing countries, in which the focus lies on images that appear to be staged. Yet each attempt to distinguish the real from the virtual exposes the fact that they are both a façade. The work is a commentary on contemporary society, in which we have got used to life with a distorted truth – a society in which people are pigeonholed, the financial world reigns supreme, and binary sources invisibly orchestrate everyday life.
Fernando Pereira Gomes (Brazil, 1993) obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York in 2011. His work has been featured in The Independent and St. Art Magazine, among others.
