Statement

Andrés Galeano is an interdisciplinary artist whose main medium is performance art. In his pieces, space, audience, objects, actions, time and his body are the elements that compose consciously the work. He mixes freely different art languages within a performance and uses the power of the instant and the presence to create actions and situations that open philosophical questions and poetical experiences. His works are usually site-specific and use a poetical logic that often leads to humorous and absurd situations. Currently part of his artistic research is focusing on the myth of flying and on the archetypical figure of the human-bird.
