7th biennale of contemporary art
José Manuel Egea is exhibited since June 5th, 2018 at the contemporary biennale of contemporary art organized by Fundación Ounce. His works are presented alongside Marina Abramovic, Miguel Barcelo, Sophie Calle, David Hockney, Paul Klee, Dorothea Lange, jaume plensa, Antonio Saura, Judith Scott and Nancy Spero.
Convinced of his magical ability to become a wolf, this young artist from Madrid is fascinated by the Kafkaesque metamorphosis found in the world of comics and mythology. As polymorphic as he is, his work consists of drawings, sculptures and performances, and urges us to accept our own repressed gifts for shape-shifting. Promoted by the gallery since 2016, he had a major show that same year by the Biennale de l’image possible in Liège, Belgium. In 2022, his work was featured in the exhibition Photo | Brut #2 at the Botanique in Brussels. His work is now part of several major European collections of contemporary art such as those of Antoine de Galbert, or Laurent Dumas.
