Laura San Segundo (1990, Spain) is an artist with a BA in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, and lecturer at EFTI, where she was awarded with a scholarship to study a Masters Degree in Photography, completed in 2016 with distinction. Her oeuvre draws on the ideas, feelings and perceptions that a concept, an experience, an observation or the interstices between different images can trigger; not focusing on particular stories, but intuitively reflecting on space, time, materiality and the narrative or metaphorical potential of the everyday, the commonplace and the overlooked, with numerous references to the history of art and the European painting traditions.
Her work has been exhibited in art institutions, galleries and fairs as the Centro Para os Assuntos da Arte e Arquitectura (Guimarães), Galería Cero (Madrid), Doomed Gallery (London), Matadero (Madrid), Casa Décor (Madrid), Palacio de las Alhajas (Madrid) or Conde Duque Contemporary Culture Centre (Madrid); and she has taken part in festivals like PhotoEspaña, Serpentine Galleries 89+Marathon (London), Encontros da Imagen (Braga), JustMAD (Madrid), Santander Photo (Santander), Fotonoviembre (Tenerife), or DOCfield (Barcelona).
Over the last years, she has also been the recipient of the Blank Paper Photobook Scholarship; an internship in the Publications Service of the National Library of Spain; the Spain Ministry of Culture FormARTE scholarship to be an artist-in-residence at the Spanish College in Paris; the Community of Madrid International Residency grant to complete a project at SÍM residency Reykjavík; and the VEGAP production grant. And she has been selected in the XXX Circuitos de Artes Plásticas and the Portfolio Days & Night at the CNA Luxembourg.
