Emile Rubino (French b. 1992) lives and works in Brussels. His domestic approach to picture-making is informed by a flirtatious relationship to other means of depiction and an embrace of eclecticism. Over the past few years he has been producing modestly scaled photographic tableaux in handcrafted artist’s frames. While his photographs tend to remain rooted within a documentary mode they are also the outcome of labored processes involving photoshop. By locating and following the internal logic of a picture as a subservient strategy his work often results in a contrived kind of photographicness.
He received his BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (Vancouver, Canada) in 2015, and his MFA from Bard College program in advanced photographic studies at ICP (New York, NY) in 2017. Selected solo exhibitions include other things, ICP-Bard studios, New York, NY, Real Allegory, Spare Room, Vancouver, Canada (2015), Still Disappearing, Concourse Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2012). Recent group exhibitions include Ami Omo (curated by Lucas Blalock), Barbara Walters Gallery, Bronxville, NY (2018), Vancouver Carry On (curated by Felix Rapp), Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, Belgium (2018).

Ficticious Legacies is a project born of a meeting of diverse feminine subjectivities. How to approach the characteristic difference of these subjectivities, while avoiding the pitfalls of a recurrent paternalism and cultural ethnocentrism ? Is it even possible ? To do this, the exhibition becomes a fictional body fed by narratives that intersect and allow to build a fictional landscape while affirming the content of these five personalities, enriched by their respective Kin.
Ficticious Legacies was initiated in the frame of the seminar ‘Après l’école’ of La Cambre coordinated by Céline Gillain.
