Nicolas Sanchez L.

About

Nicolas Sanchez (Santiago de Chile, 1981) lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany. With the backdrop of an increasingly uncertain and bleak global future Sanchez conducts his work as an ongoing audiovisual study that incorporates both performance and intervention in the physical landscape. Just as Romanticism arose in response to the excesses of 18th Century rationalism and its broken utopian promises Sanchez uses his landscapes as a form of romantic escapism whilst breathing into them a feeling desperation, melancholy, anger and hope.
