Diego Delas

Diego Delas is currently studying for his doctoral degree in Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art and Kellogg College, University of Oxford.

Could we regard installations as refined siblings of those medieval devices for oratory and the art of memory? Is there a possibility of approaching images, pictures, installations or any form of art just by its similitude with sets, props and stages? What if in order to experiment with thoughts, memories and  recollections-­‐ those could be just functioning as a certain but forgotten medieval memory device?

Diego holds an MFA in Painting from the Royal College of Arts, and graduated in Architecture and BA Fine Arts from Universidad Europea in Madrid. He is currently an AHRC awarded scholar.
