LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Andrea Alkalay is a visual artist currently based in Argentina with a degree in Industrial Design (UBA). Was trained in photography attending workshops and art programs, experimenting with alternative techniques and creative processes. She took part in Proyecto Imaginario, an overall curated program for visual artists based on photography from 2015 to 2016. She traveled for “the natural eye ” workshop with Eddie Soloway (2017- USA). Uncertain nature in her authorial photobook launched in 2016.
She uses photography through the poetic and political potential that arises from observation, interested in the discrepancy between what we see and what we know, where these qualities contradict each other and coexist simultaneously. Another line of inquiry of her practice is the voyage. The condition of foreignness and displacement is a source of inspiration. Artificial and natural elements are combined to infuse strangeness into the work and thus question our societal and emotional realities.
