Working across film photography and installation, Greta Alfaro uses myths and popular tradition to address contemporary issues. Her past projects have included a site-specific exhibition, ‘I Will Not Hesitate to React Spiritually’ at Lambeth County Court where she responded to found documents of supposed spiritual interference by Southwark Council and In Ictu Oculi, a film in which the guests at an elaborate dinner table set in mountainous landscape transpire to be a wake of savage vultures.
Greta Alfaro lives and works between London and Spain. Her solo exhibitions include Decimocuarta estación (2019) at the Fundación BBVA, Madrid; In Ictu Oculi (2019) at the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan; El cataclismo nos alcanzará impávidos (2015) and European DarkRoom (2014) at Galería Rosa Santos, Valencia; Still Life with Books (2014) at Artium, Vitoria; In Praise of the Beast (2013) at Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan; and Invención (2012) at Ex Teresa, Mexico City.
