Fernando García-Dory

Madrid, Artist




Fernando García-Dory’s work engages specifically with the relationship between culture and nature now, as manifested in multiple contexts, from landscape and the rural, to desires and expectations concerned with identity, through to (global) crisis, utopia and the potential for social change. He studied Fine Arts and Rural Sociology, and is now prepairing his PhD on Agroecology. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections and cooperation, from microorganisms to social systems, and from traditional art languages such as drawing to collaborative agroecological projects, actions, and cooperatives. His work has been shown in Tensta Konsthall (Stockholm) , Van Abbe Museum & CASCO (Netherlands), MALBA (Buenos Aires) or SFMOMA (San Francisco) . He has been invited to contribute to different  Biennales (such as Athens, Istanbul, or Gwangju) and in Documenta 13. In 2012 he was awarded with the Annenberg Prize for Socially Engaged Art by Creative Time New York and was finalist of the Rolex Prize. He is fellow of Council of Forms (Paris) and board member of the World Alliance of Nomadic Pastoralist an organization he promoted in 2007. Since 2009 he starts INLAND , a collaborative platform and para-institution in which he dissolves his authorship.
