Andrés Denegri approaches the visual arts combining film, video, installations and photography. His projects generate dialogues between different formats, addressing them poetically and conceptually, creating tension in the classic uses of audiovisual technologies. Vintage film projectors are the protagonists of many of Denegri’s installations: from portable family devices to powerful industrial machines are combined in the production of kinetic objects where celluloid leaves the projector and travels through the space transited by the viewer.
