David Ferrando Giraut Images Bio

David Ferrando Giraut

(b 1978, Negreira, Spain). His practice focused mainly on video, sound and installation, combines the hybridisation of natural elements, technology and sociopolitical organisation through history. Using the tensions between representation and represented reality as a cognitive tool, some of his recent concerns are related to the colonisation of aesthetic experience by capital.
