Gil Delindro (⃰1989) is a multidisciplinary
artist working on the conflicting relation between nature, ego and
technology. Through a cross-border practice of filmmaking, installation,
performance and field research. His work offers a bond between mediums, facing
concepts such as animism, movement, decay and post digital conflicts.
Sound is the binding element in Delindro´s
language, it represents the immaterial nature of matter, a continuous collapse
of the present in to the past that has no fixed body - such idea is a core
question of his work, how do we perceive intangible and imperceptible
processes in nature, how conscious of their movement can we become. Delindro
works primarily with raw organic elements and analog self-built processes,
creating a very physical, sensory and visceral work that embraces both a
concrete and unique imaginary land. His installations often become
independent beings with life expectancy that exist in a transient state of mutation,
where reductionism and holism can coexist.
Based between Porto and Berlin, his artwork
has been awarded and presented in an extensive variety of locations, from
isolated rural areas to museums and venues in Toronto, São Paulo, Marrakech,
New York and Europe extensively. His practice is based upon constant field
research in isolated landscapes - in late 2015 he was one of the chosen artists
taking part in a 3-month residency in the African Sahara desert - The weight of Mountains. In 2017 he
will take part in a field research project in the Amazonian rainforest.
