Fernando García-Dory

Fernando García-Dory´s work engages with the relationship between culture and nature now, as manifested in multiple contexts from landscape and the rural, to desires and expectations concerned with identity, as well as (global) crisis, utopia and the potential for social change. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections and cooperation, from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages to collaborative agroecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. He has exhibited at: Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid; SFMOMA, San Francisco; the Athens, Lisbon, Gwangju and Jeju Biennales; and at dOCUMENTA (13). He is the recipient of the 2012 Annenberg Prize for Socially Engaged Art by Creative Time New York and a fellow of Council of Forms (Paris) and board member of the World Alliance of Nomadic Pastoralists.
