Juan Pablo Gaviria Bedoya (1991), Cali, Colombia. 

Visual artist graduated from the University of Arts in Berlin, Germany, with a Master in Fine Arts from the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University in Bogota, Colombia.

Coming from a region that thinks of itself in the tension between its "geographical centrality" and the imposed "historical periphery" it is granted, my artistic practice imagines possible ways of feeling and knowing the world through metaphors and paradoxes. Conceived between fictional or poetic scenarios, my work is situated at the intersection between audiovisual language, performance and writing.

In search of an intratropical phenomenology, I delve into possible paradoxical relations between body, image and language as a strategy to question hemispheric and hegemonic notions, expanding the logical and kinetic understanding of our world through affect as a trigger of movements and senses.
