Pedro Gómez-Egaña Biography

Pedro Gómez-Egaña makes sculptures, immersive installations, phonographic pieces and films, also making use of different mediums such as performance, text and sound works. Central to his artistic approach is the performative aspect of sculpture, which he presents as dynamic, animated objects or as theatrical environments. His practice is motivated by technology and how it influences the ways in which we experience and understand time. His recent projects reconstruct and refer to historical examples of industrialization, presenting them as haunted and vulnerable. Drawing from both contemporary and historical intersections between science and the occult, Gómez-Egaña's work also explores the relationship between technology and mysticism, and the emotional and spiritual undertones of digital culture.
