Mario Arroyave (CO)
Colombian Mario Arroyave studied Systems Engineering from 1999 to 2004 at Ulatina of Costa Rica and then advertising at the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano in Bogotá between 2004 and 2007. That year he traveled to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to study cinematography.
Photography and video lay at the heart of his work. Making use of repetition as a metaphor of time, in a series of images highlighting the possibility of creation through an observation exercise. Movements are synthesized by the screenshot of images during an extended period into space swayings striking each other, in order to present an alternative visual reality to the audience.
