"Emilio Lopez-Menchero lives and works in Brussels. He is a licensed architect and he studied visual arts at La Cambre in Brussels. With his projects– video, audio, performances and installations – he asks the question what the identity of the ‘artist’ is in society. He puts things into perspective and investigates the myths that go with it and in the process he likes to make use of existing icons from literature, music, cinema and even cartoons. His work has been shown, among others, at the SMAK (Gent), the Fondation pour l’Architecture (Brussels) and the Venice Biennial." (argos festival catalogue 2004)
