Third year Photography and Video Art student Arthur Trombetta is set to open his first solo exhibition in London before even graduating from the University of Bedfordshire

Titled Synthetic, the show will open at the Artworks in Elephant and Castle on 5 February and run through to 27 February.

Explaining his work Arthur said: “Synthetic features art works highlighting the ambiguous relationship between the digital and the organic, orchestrating the confrontation between recorded bacteria and digitalised godlike presence.

“It aims to explore one possible outcome of our future as humans within the context of new technologies and digitalisation.”

In addition to Synthetic, Arthur will be featuring a video montage entitled Chaplin’s Phuturistic vision as a tribute to the Walworth-born actor Charlie Chaplin.

Course Leader for Photography and Video Art and Senior Lecturer in Visual Arts Practice Nigel Grimmer commented: “It’s great to see our students doing so well, especially before they even graduate.

“Arthur is a talented student and it’s wonderful to see that all his hard work is being rewarded and paying off.”

“Our students put on exhibitions in the University as part of their degree in their first year and create their own galleries in Luton in their second year. This then enables them in their third year to apply to venues and competitions to secure exhibitions of their own.”

Synthetic is open to the public and more information can be found at www.theartworks.london His artwork is available to purchase over the course of the exhibition. More about Arthur at  arthurtrombetta.com
