BALTIC Bites | Fernando García-Dory

Archive Shelf Location BALTIC2022M
Publication Date 26 May 2022

Fernando García-Dory´s work engages with the relationship between culture and nature, as manifested in multiple contexts, from landscape and the rural, to desires and expectations in relation to identity, crisis, utopia and the potential for social change. Interested in the harmonic complexity of biological forms and processes, his work addresses connections and cooperation, microorganisms, social systems, traditional art languages and collaborative agro-ecological projects and actions. Since 2009, García-Dory has developed INLAND, a collaborative platform and para-institution dedicated to agricultural, social and cultural production.

García-Dory studied Fine Arts and Rural Sociology, and is now preparing his PhD in Agro-ecology. His work has been shown at Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Reina Sofia, Madrid; SFMOMA, San Francisco; amongst others. He has participated in biennials in Athens, Lisbon, Gwangju, Jeju, and in Documenta 13. He is a fellow of Council of Forms in Paris and a board member of the World Alliance of Nomadic Pastoralists. He was awarded the Creative Time’s Leonore Annenberg Prize for Art and Social Change.

Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) supports Inland Academy at BALTIC through the Programme for the Internationalisation of Spanish Culture (PICE), in the framework of the Mobility grants.
