Asunción Molinos Gordo’s art focuses on the contemporary struggles of peasant life and the socio-cultural implications of food and agriculture. She employs photography, video, installation and other media to explore the rural sphere and apply a transnational approach to the issues of the peasantry. Her practice is centred around the social and cultural changes that are taking place in rural areas, always looking at what is being left behind in the rush of progress.
In 2006, Molinos received an MA in Contemporary Art Theory and Practice from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, where she had previously completed a BFA in 2003. She currently lives and works between Oman and her hometown of 80 inhabitants, Guzmán in Spain, studying Social and Cultural Anthropology through the National University (UNED).
Molinos’s work has been shown in Spain, the UK and Egypt at venues including La Casa Encendida, Museo Patio Herreriano, CAB, La Fábrica, The Townhouse Gallery and ARNOLFINI Art Centre, and her piece WAM (World Agriculture Museum) won the Sharjah Biennial Prize in 2015.Website
