Denis Rodriguez & Leonardo Remor

october 2019

The Brazilian duo has been collaborating since 2010, most visibly as co-founders of the experimental Galeria Península (2014-2017), which emphasized process-oriented works. Together they also organize the KAÁ rural residency, a nomadic platform that aims to discuss the breadth and scope of contemporary art research that takes nature as the source and place for creative innovation, whose first edition took place at the Yvy Maraey Institute in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

In their recent production they often act as witnesses and chroniclers of past and present times. Their goal is to create a setting, a gravitational field of cross genre aesthetic practices and social relevance. Their major concern is the continuous research, that favors a clear position on a specific subject, with which they can get to found an imaginary that oscillates between reality and fiction, between the mechanical routine and the episodic freedom, between lust for life and loss of truth.
