Andrés Matías Pinilla, 1988
Bogotá, Colombia


In his work, he proposes a holistic vision of human knowledge in recognition of the cosmological, ethnic, sexual, racial, and philosophical plurality of our species as the greatest virtue. He insists on the imminent decolonization of language and territory as the main path towards a genuinely global, plural, and united world. His exhibition projects combine different media and invite the active participation of those who come to experience them. He continually extends an invitation to people from other disciplines to be part of his immersive works and installations, seeking in this way to blur the limits of individual creation and activating hidden powers through the symbiosis of different fields of thought, work, and production. He finds in the poetic language of objects and images, possibilities to experiment, fable utopias and tentaculate with other people subversive ways of hacking the hegemonic systems of circulation of Contemporary Art.
He understands the artistic practice as a revolutionary way of worlding: a complex toolkit to think and create new paradigms that are both abstract and powerful. Those that invoke new universes of reference that manage to conquer the collective imagination with other possible futures to inhabit.
