TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary

A voice repeats “1,2,3” uninterruptedly. A collection of three seconds field recordings from different parts of the world abruptly recorded during one year. 1…2…3… like a martial tempo of a transitory body confused in time. The performance is durational and obsessively shredded in seconds. A blocked enumeration for an unexhausted body in loop. Perhaps a footnote to the old and arthitric Cunningham in its minimal choreography for the video installation “Stillness” by Tacita Dean. Or maybe the search of reaching a trance state. Or just the simple boredom of a repetitive voice filling the emptiness of a diary when you forgot what to say…

Andrés Galeano is an interdisciplinary artist working with photography, drawing, performance, video, installation and sound. His researches of the last years gravitated towards the myth of flying, the archetypical figure of the human-bird, the performativity of the index finger in our iSociety and the photo-album. He likes to reflect on our contemporary world by opening philosophical questions and using humor as a critical and poetical tool. He practices art following a performative paradigm, putting more emphasis on the process, the construction of situations in a certain context, the (inter)actions and the creation of experiencies rather than the production of tangible objects.
Andrés Galeano was born in Spain in 1980. He holds a Philosophy degree at the Universtiy of Barcelona, a Photography diploma at the Freie Fotoschule Stuttgart and a Sculpture/Free Art degree at the Kunsthochschule Weißensee Berlin. He works with drawing, photography, video, installation and performance and has realized exhibitions and performances in Europe, Latin America and Canada. In Berlin he has been curating the performance art programme Extension Series at Grimmuseum, ¡POESÍACCIÓN! at Instituto Cervantes and co-organizing the Month of Performance Art Berlin. He lives in Berlin and Barcelona.
