Art Aia – La Dolce Berlin is pleased to invite you on Friday, September 1st at 18h to the solo show of Latin American photographer Emilia Lloret (www.emilialloretphotography.com)
After a month residency at our venue, the artist will show you her newest work based on her project in Berlin.
“I always return to taking pictures. The sense of getting close to capture memories without the need of words always pulls me back in. This is why I continue.
Creating pictures allows me to acknowledge my own feelings of solitude and vulnerability and enables me to relate to the world around me”.
Emilia Lloret was born in Ecuador (1989). Her work moves between documentary and artistic photography focusing on themes regarding identity and belonging.
Her work has been exhibited worldwide in America, Europe and Asia in festivals such as the FotoFever Art Fair in Louvre Paris, La Salle College of the Arts Singapore, Framed in Sloane Square London, ECAR Art Residency in Boston, Cork Festival in Ireland, etc.
Among her most important awards and recognitions are winning the Deutsche Bank Award in Photography (2014), selected for the first Master Class Latin America by World Press Photo in México City (2015), selected for the Emmanuel College Art Residency Boston (2016), finalist for the Magnum Fellowship in Human Rights (2016).
Her work has been published in The New York Times, Newsweek, The BBC, The Telegraph, The British Journal of Photography, among others.
“Taking the exploration of abandoned places in Berlin as a departing point, these pictures are a visual record of the experiences, encounters, and emotions I went through while I was visiting these locations.
More than a testimony, this series is an exploration of the sense of loss, impermanence and imperfection”.
