Just what is it that makes today so familiar, so uneasy?

Pedro Gómez-Egaña

Pedro Gómez-Egaña (1976, Colombia) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Bergen, Norway. His practice encompasses sculpture, video, phonography, and site-specific works that focus on motion and temporality. In some of his works this interest is made manifest in intricate stagings, in which audiences can experience the transformation of sculptural bodies. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘En Abyme’, Knipsu (Bergen, 2011), ‘Campo de Fuerzas’, Torre de los Vientos (Mexico City) and ‘Might Arrives’, Hordaland Art Centre (both 2009). His work has been included in ‘Sous nos yeux’, La Kunsthalle Mulhouse (France, 2013), 3rd AiM International Biennale, Marrakech (Morocco, 2009), 1st Brussels Biennial (Rabat, Morocco, 2008). He has been a guest lecturer at Goldsmiths College and Laban Centre, London, and completed his PhD at the Norwegian Artistic Fellowship Programme in 2013. He is currently coordinator for the MA in Art programme, Bergen Academy of Art and Design.
