Oriol Arnedo Casas

Long-term residency

May 2024 - 2026

Oriol Arnedo Casas. Barcelona, 1993

Oriol’s practice navigates the shifting and malleable realms of technology and nature. His sculptural compositions interrogate the realities that surround us and explore the capacity of performative objects to generate new imaginaries.

Autonomous artifacts, absurd machines that come to life, technological organisms… A restless, mechanized desire to engage with the environment connects his objects. This embodies the idea of mechanized, rudimentary living matter in the ultra-technological era. The machine, in his work, does not adopt a functional role but an imaginary one in our lives. Within the context of socio-climatic crisis, his work offers a critical perspective on the Western conception of nature and seeks to create new narratives that help redefine our relationship with the environment.

Oriol Arnedo Casas is an artist, holding a degree in Design from the Escola Superior de Disseny (ESDi) and a Master of Arts (MA) in Material Futures from Central Saint Martins-UAL. His work has been exhibited at Aram Gallery (London), Museu Tecla Sala (Hospitalet), Catherine Murphy Gallery (Minneapolis, USA), Dutch Design Week, and the Design Museum (London). He has participated in the artist residency Understanding in Residence organized by Understanding Design and has contributed writings to CCCB Lab. As a member of the collective United Matters, he has been part of the creative community Kocido in southeast London, and since 2022, he has been the driving force behind the creative laboratory Thistopics.
