Mexico 1970

Andrés Montes is a Mexican multidisciplinary artist trained in the United States, currently living and working in Madrid, Spain. His creative interests explore the poetics of displacement, investigating concepts such as permanence and the mechanisms utilized to create a place to call our own. Through the exploration of diverse materials and techniques, that range from drawing to installation, sculpture, performance or video, he probes into the representation of strategies for the construction of a place and brings to our attention the fragility of our belongings.
