Victor Santamarina

Víctor Santamarina lives and works in Rotterdam. Central to his practice is his intrigue on the agency and resistance within the potentialities of the making processes. Along with abstractness, Santamarina repeatedly mixes the sculptures with references from his context. For example, in his latest project he used a leakage in his workspace in a abandoned building as starting point of a new sculpture installation:

“Reduced to its essence I think about the leakage as an unplanned break through a boundary: a boundary that encloses a liquid, an idea, a body or a social structure. In a context where life is structured by controlling forces, the leakage turn to be a subversive act, an escape, a form of resistance.”
