Ana Genovés (b. 1969, Madrid) lives and works in London. She received a BA from Chelsea College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London, in 1993 and a MA from Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, in 1995. Genovés' work spans different media: sculpture, painting and photography. In recent years she has developed an interest in objects that explore how our rational thinking coexists with other ungraspable aspects of our consciousness such as spiritual belief or phenomenological experience. Genovés believes that the shape we give to these objects, particularly when they interface with architecture or the other ways that we arrange social and civil space, frequently defaults to the clarity of logic of geometry to signify and contain the irrational. She was shortlisted for the Jerwood Sculpture Prize in 2001 .Solo exhibitions include: CASS window project, (2014); Standpoint Gallery, London (2014); BLOCK, Vitrine Gallery, London (2011); Ana Genovés, The Russian Club, London (2009); Ana Genovés, The Drawing Room/Tannery Arts, London (2008); and Ana Genovés, The Approach, London (1999). Recent group exhibitions include: The Uplamoor Show, Glasgow International Festival (2014); The London Open, Whitechapel Gallery (2012); SV12 Members' Show, Studio Voltaire, London (2012); Hiroshima Art Document, Former Bank of Japan, Hiroshima, Japan, residency and exhibition (2010); and The Square Show, Bloomberg SPACE, London (2003).
