Víctor Mazón Gardoqui
Víctor takes an empirical approach to sound, light and electronics. His work questions perception, altered states and vulnerability through performances, exhibitions and seminars. He has been invited as an artist and lecturer in schools in Europe and abroad, and has performed or exhibited in museums, biennials, urban screens, etc. on all continents.
My work exposes the unheard of and the invisible, addressing the inaccessible and provoking vulnerability and awareness in the viewer. Perception and altered states are key concepts in his performances through the use of sound or light. My work materializes in three main areas: site-specific actions or performances through experimental processes, exhibitions as consequences of previous actions, and collaborative work through seminars to form a community dialogue.
My work has been presented or exhibited in museums, biennials, galleries, billboards, urban screens and TV/radio stations in Africa, Russia, Nepal, North America, Canada, Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay, Antarctica and many cities in Europe.
