Over the next few days until Saturday – VITRINE’s opening – we will be profiling one of the emerging artists exhibiting at the show.
Today we would like to introduce :-
Spain, 1977. Lives and works in London.
MA graduate in Photography from the Royal College of Art, London and BA from Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Spain.

Inanimate Beings at La Casa Encendida, Madrid, and the solo shows Elogio de la Bestia at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Huarte in Spain, In Ictu Oculi at Carpe Diem Arte & Pesquisa in Portugal and Ricorrenza at Dryphoto art contemporanea in Italy. Alfaro’s video work has been recently screened at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Caixa Forum Madrid.
We visualize the barren landscape of desire and will. Through the cracks of our consciousness, breaking the comfort of alienation, we catch, from time to time, glimpses of corruption, decline and decay that belong to our very selves. The phantoms appear, the dead change sides. Ours is a posthumous celebration.
Greta’s piece In Ictu Oculi, (2009) will be exhibited in Vitrine – 11 colourful outside jobs, a public moving image exhibition in the streets of Brighton as part of the White Night, 29th to 30th October 7pm to 6am.
