Jorge Yeregui is a visual artist, architect and lecturer.
He studied Architecture at the University of Sevilla (2003) and later went on to become a lecturer in the School of Architecture at the University of Málaga. His photographic work investigates urban and territory transformations. The relation between architecture and environmental awareness and the influence of global markets on urban development are the core of his projects. His recent works take the form of large visual essays, often including texts, video and installations.
Jorge Yeregui explores this way of constructing and representing the landscape, proposing a reflection on perception and the way we construct knowledge of our surroundings. His projects transcend the aesthetic of landscape and mine the confluence of the natural, cultural and social factors that condition it.
He has received awards, commissions and fellowships such as the Beca de Artes Plásticas Fundación Botín (2015), Beca Casa Velázquez (2013-2014), Pla(t)form 2013 at Winterthur Fotomuseum, Pilar Citoler International Contemporary Photography Award (2011), the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2011), the Spanish Ministry of Culture (2010) and the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, among others. His work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. “Un repertorio improbable” (2021) “Deshacer, borrar, activar” (2020) “On the Right to the City” (2019) and “Stakeout Act” (2016), are some of his most recent solo shows. His solo exhibitions have been shown at Tabacalera Promoción del Arte, Madrid; Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Sevilla; Centro de Fotografía de la Universidad de Salamanca, Salamanca; Centro José Guerrero, Granada and Colegio de España en Paris.
He has also participated in various group-shows at renowned photography festivals such as PhotoEspaña International Festival of Photography and Visual Arts (Spain), Festival Internazionale di Roma (Italy), Pyngyao International Photography Festival (China), Fotofestiwal (Poland) and Foto30 (Guatemala). Yeregui has also collaborated on research, exhibition and publication projects with the Universidad de Cordoba (2013), Universidad de Salamanca (2010) and Universidad de Cadiz (2010).
