Traces AIR Antwerpen

Francisco Camacho

Jan 2011 to Mar 2011
1979 Colombia

Francisco Camacho werd uitgenodigd in het kader van het researchproject Enacting Populism voor een residentie van drie maanden in AIR Antwerpen. 


Francisco Camacho seeks ways in which his work can exist within official social channels. His projects have been the result of long investigations and collaborations with the local context, inhabitants and lawyers to allow his discourse to be examined by other structures of society. Therefore, his projects often leave the art world to become significant in another fields and can be viewed as a form of political activism or social discourses. His practice revolves around the possibility of art to bear practical effects for the cultural background and reflects on re-defining common concepts that can lead art to change the way in which we conceive society.


The artist lives and works in Amsterdam. He was a resident at the Rijksacademy in 2008 and 2009. Soloprojects include (a selection): Duurzame Stroom Netwerk, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, 2011; A group marriage in the courtyard of SKOR on the 31st of July 2009, SKOR, Amsterdam, 2009.
