Pep Vidal IN RESiDENCE at the School Costa i Llobera

Pep Vidal (Barcelona, 1980) has a degree in Mathematics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB, 2008) and is particularly interested in infinitesimal calculus, topology and infinite series. He also holds a PhD in Physics from the UAB and ALBA synchrotron (2014). His thesis research is based on mathematical algorithms for improving the accuracy of instruments used in particle accelerators. In this, he has reached two important conclusions: that there are some extremely sensitive and complex systems; and that he is not interested in research that does not include his own life experience in the process. He works with really small, infinitesimal changes that are constantly taking place, everywhere. The chain of infinitesimal changes is chaotic and practically infinite.

He has taken part in exhibitions at many institutions, including: Rolando Anselmi Gallery, Berlin, 2015 (solo and collective); Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan Universal Exposition, 2015; Generaciones 2015, La Casa Encendida, Madrid, 2015; La buena estrella, curated by Carolina Castro, OTR, Madrid, 2015; ARCO, Galería L21, Madrid; Los límites del control, Galería L21, Madrid, 2015 (solo); Solo project, Art-O-Rama, Marsella, 2014 (solo); Una cabaña para acabar la tesis, Can Felipa Arts Visuals, Barcelona, 2014; L'ocell que vola, Galeria Esther Montoriol, Barcelona, 2014; Beyond, THE WINDOW, Galería L 21, Madrid, 2014; Un humilde calcetín, Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona, 2014. He has been an artist-in-residence at Hangar (2013-15). In 2015, he presented Trees, Treelines and Global Patterns at the ADN gallery.

Biography written in 2015

School Costa i Llobera

The Institut Escola Costa i Llobera (Sarrià) is an education centre with a long tradition of involvement in educational reform movements and has very close connections with the neighbourhood of Sarrià. It opened in 1958-1959 and, together with the CEPEC centres, transferred in the 1980s into the publicly-run education system under the Catalan Government Ministry of Education. It promotes innovation and experimentation programmes at every level of education.
