Albert Potrony works with installation, sound and video. Participation is a key element in his practice. His recent project Faith, explores the relationship between belief and individual identity presented as a multi-channel video installation with material spanning across Nigeria and the UK.
Last year Potrony worked with young people from the UK and Brazil to develop Tate Other, a collaborative video and performance that took place at Tate Modern in September 2012 as part of the Worlds Together Conference. He is now developing Another Utopia, a collaborative project exploring the squatting and housing co-operative movements of the late 70s and 80s in London.
Albert has been working on participatory projects for international galleries and museums for the past ten years, among them Camden Arts Centre, Gasworks, Next Generation at the National Theatre, Tate and Whitechapel in the UK and The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, Serralves Foundation, Portugal, Inhotim andMAC in Niterói, Brazil; Centro Cultural Palacio La Moneda, Chile and Foundacion PROA, Argentina.
Albert Potrony has devised free downloadable activities for the History and Memory activity pack 1 in the resource section. As part of the offline BP Art Exchange programme, he is running workshops with schools and gallery partners in Denmark and the UK.
