Matter occupies a place in space under a given condition or problem. I pursue the sensory experience through the object and its light.

Borja Barrajón Acedo was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1985.
He started his formal education as sculptor in the beaux arts of Madrid in 2006 and since then, he has always had clear that stone was going to be the main material that would give form to his career.
Despite his youth, Barrajón began to stand out with his first works in contests, scholarships and collective expositions where varied prizes and honorable mentions were awarded between 2009 and 2013, besides participating in different collections and museums.
Since 2014, he started to expose in different national exhibitions and the ones that stand out the most are “Flecha: Fair of Contemporary Art” and “Art Madrid fair ”, whose appearance and acceptance from the public prove that the visions of this young artist is beginning to take a place inside the emerging Spanish scene.
During these latest years, he has represented contemporary art in his country in different galleries, making his most important individual exhibitions: “Reflections about the Void” and “The Form´s Identity”.
Barrajón understands sculpture as the order and organization of forms in the space, carrying out abstract compositions where matter takes place under a certain condition or contemplated problem. Each sculpture is the result of his present, being free of expressing his emotions and concerns that invade him through all the process, making each work a once in a lifetime unique piece. That is why we have been able to find that huge diversity of forms and emotions, because they are a reflection of a very specific moment that gives every sculpture its own character and personality under a personal perception in constant evolution.
