What do we mean by tropical islands? And artificial islands? What do they represent in the imaginary collective?
NOWhere or in the middle of the ocean is an exhibition that explores the post-humanist-tropical imaginary through the study of artificial island and beach projects: floating hotels, military bases, islands in the sale, floating cities, videos of paradisiacal beaches. Juan David Galindo uses a range of projections to explore the thin line that divides utopia and dystopia and the relation between the dreams and the material conditions of existence.
Juan David Galindo (Bogotá, 1992) is based in Barcelona. His artistic work is articulated through performance, video, installation and archive. He studied Fine Arts and Design at La Massana and the Independent Studies Program at MACBA.
