Residency period: April until June 2014
In his line of research he incorporates elements of fiction that navigate through language, music, architecture, and even baseball. Although simple in essence, this engagement develops into pieces of a larger puzzle, inviting the audience to be immersed in bewildering scenarios. In this process, aspects of popular culture meet head-on with divergent moments of fantasy, hence unfolding incidents of a time that is not ours to call our own. As a consequence, his practice incites artificial landscapes where the absurd and the uncertain prevail.
